Selected Linux Live Discs
If you want to try Linux, but don't know where to start, try one of the following Linux Live Discs. A Linux live disc is usually burned to a writable CD or DVD and allows one to boot linux onto a computer without installing it.
On all of these, one can also install that distribution onto the computer as well.
Recently purchased computers all have 64-bit cpus, except Netbooks.
If you are unsure which Live Disc to try choose either Fedora Gnome 32-bit or Ubuntu 32-bit.
On computer which already have an operating system installed (typically windows) a new user should seek help if they wish to dual boot between the two operating systems.
How to burn a live disc These directions are for Fedora, but will apply to any bootable iso image file.
Here are links to lists of other Live CDs: Wikipedia and Linux Links
