ah then that makes it hard.  Sasha how about you download an ubuntu CD 
from www.ubuntu.com (or your ISP' mirror if they have one) and run the 
live OS (try before you install) off the CD.  You can learn a lot about 
using linux (in the form of one distribution called ubuntu) in this 
mode, it just runs a bit slower.  Ubuntu community and Canonical company 
have invested a huge amount of effort into making it easy right off the 

I use it and love it.  It's really very straightforward for users to use 
and if/when you get to the point you want to install it, you can install 
it in such a way as to dual boot it (it's the default mode on the 
install btw) with your windows box and happily work with either OS until 
you are ready to make that commitment to one or the other.
