Thought I was negative t'wards Linux now, didn't you ?

Neh, I'm wondering if there's a ver. for beginners to run on a partition along with Win. I don't wanna get rid of Win until I know
how to run Linux. And is it possible to run things on Linux as on Win ? Is it just for pro's or can one learn to use it in a pretty easy way or do I need a astronomical education ?
