I did manage to find a copy of Lindows to download, but I think I was
quite disappointed with it... I couldn't get it to install on the PC I
tried it on...

For what it's worth, If you are interested in learning linux, you are
probably better off with a more common distributions of Linux, e.g.
SuSE, Mandrake, Redhat. I have installed all of them at one time or
another, they all seem quite similar in that they are all quite easy
install and use. I have also tried others, which I would say are for the
more "advanced" users, in that the installation and config are much more
complicated, e.g. Gentoo linux.

Hope this helps with your learning curve...

>From what I've gathered, Lindows seems
to be classed as "Noddy's" Linux by
many. Does anyone have any experience
of this? Is it a distribution which
might reduce my 'linux learning curve'
gradient? I would welcome any advice.
