I've heard Linux is only for very technical people.  Isn't it hard to install and use? 
.
This was very much the case in the past, but Linux has been around for over 10 years now and there are now specialized versions of Linux designed specifically to be very easy to both install and use on the desktop.  The Linspire version of Linux, for example, takes under 10 minutes to install without a single difficult step or question.

Which version of Linux would be the best one for ME to try out?
.

Linux first started gaining huge popularity on computer "servers," (the computers that businesses use to share files internally and over the Internet.)  Red Hat and SuSE are the best known versions of Linux for servers, but they are not optimized for easy desktop use.

Two excellent Linux versions for desktop computing for engineers, developers and very technical users would be those from Mandrake and SuSE.  

For non-technical users, or those who are familiar with MS Windows, we'd suggest Linspire is the version to try.
