Getting Started "select, download and burn"

Unlike the small set of OS Coices of Windows, there are a wide variety of Linux Distributions (aka "Distro's) so the first step is to determine which one you want to use. There are a wide variety of factors which may influence this decision.

(*)-I won't go into those, unless asked...

Step two is to go to the website for your chosen Distro and download the software. In my case the URL I downloaded an .ISO file which can be burnt directly to a CD. There are many tools (some free) which can be used to do this from within Windows (*). One can also request a free CD, in some cases, or buy a CD.
