I've been interested in this "Linux" thing for some years. There are way too many variations that I have no idea where to start. I mainly want to install it on this netbook Eee PC 1005HAB Intel Atom N270 1.60GHz Processor 1GB DDR2 RAM 160GB HDD Windows 7 starter but would like to mess around with other computers maybe. I see there are tons of options and you can try them on a bootable CD first without committing to an install. What do you suggest for this particular computer or others? I'm used to Windows so I am used to having just a plain OS with adding/buying your own programs. It seems a lot of Linux OS's come with free apps? Or is it a store like on your smart phone where you download apps?
