I recently 'converted' 2 or 3 people to Linux. One of them I support
quite closely. I can anonymise my replies to him and then form an
Q&A-like page.

Debian is probably not the best of distibutions of Linux for beginners.
If you want programs like Open Office and Firefox pre-installed. I
suggest you look into Ubuntu.


The address above enables you to get the CD shipped to your house for
_free_ (Linux is free, as always as so are programs that run on it). You
can use the "Live CD" to get hands-on experience with Linux _without_
affecting Windows. If you are happy, then you can install it as your
permanent operating system. Either way, I suggest you order the CD from
the address above. The Live CD means that you needn't make any
changes... it's like a trial version. It should run smoothly on older
computer like yours too. That's one of the reasons why I strongly
recommended it.
