Quite honestly, I've decided to do this myself without finding this forum post. But I will say, so far I'm impressed.
I decided to start with Ubuntu. Because the way the UI is situated, and laid out seems to somehow speak to me. I spent a great deal of time looking at different distros and watching Linux related videos on YouTube before I made my decision. And on top of this, since Linux is generally pretty small from what I see, and takes up very little room, I may try a few other distros too.
My main machine at the moment is dual booted with Windows 10. And don't get me wrong, I LOVE Windows 10. I've always BEEN an avid Windows guy, but I figured I'm not getting any younger, and it seems Linux is picking up steam much faster than ANY other OS I've seen. So I figureed, what the hell. Might as well learn it now, and be prepared for when it takes over the world!
So here lies my first day's foray into the world of Linux. Ubuntu more accurately, and am hoping I'm not disappointed.
