I usually recommend people starting with Linux try a couple of versions to
see which feels best for them and to see some of the variety. I often
recommend new Linux users try Ubuntu, Fedora and Suse, and Mandriva is also
a nice one to try. You can google each of these and download them easily
enough. You should check out distrowatch.org which gives you the news on
many of the distros and you can follow which ones ar most popular as well as
find out information about them and where to get copies.
