Hi John and welcome aboard.

You say that you don't have much computing experience?  Well, I would
consider that an asset when it comes to Linux.  You won't have to
unlearn loads of Microsoft stuff.  I'll also say that I don't really
consider Microsoft rubbish just different and not as secure as Linux
or many other operating systems.  I use Windows 7 every day but
hopefully I'll get Ubuntu onto this laptop in the very near future.
I've used Linux for about 15 years now but I :-)

Take care
