I will try it tomorrow. Looks complicated for a non techie like me. I have to get some discs if I understood correctly.
I was half joking, but only because I hate Windows and would absolutely love to see more people running a Linux distro. Linux can be complicated for the newbie, especially Debian, but it's not all bad because there are some easier distros out there for the non-techies. If you'd like to try it out download VirtualBox
or any other VM available and go from there, or download a live CD and boot up.
The thing is that installing Linux can do one of two things: either completely wipe out your Windows partition and install only one OS (Debian) or re-partition your hard drive and install Windows and Debian along side eachother. It all depends on how familiar you are with partitioning a hard drive, and/or how risky you want to be. It's not all that difficult considering there are seriously hundreds of tutorials on the Internet for how to do it.
So, if you're non-technical and have a lot of things on your WIndows PC (like music, documents, pictures, etc) that you don't have backed up to an external drive, sticking with Windows might be a good idea without at least trying and getting familiar with Linux first.
