    Thanks, but I also interested to read about the experience of using it.
    Also, there a lot of versions. Can you recommend some for super Linux noob?

    The internet is chock full of experiences of using Linux. For example, the following simple Google search for "experience with Linux" turns up hundreds of millions of hits: https://www.google.com/search?q=experience+with+Linux

    Here's a good article about some of the different ways to get started with Linux: https://opensource.com/article/19/7/...-started-linux

    Zorin OS is a good distro for those familiar with Windows. Here are instructions for getting it set up: https://lotoftech.com/how-to-install...gside-windows/

    I would say pick your distro first - every distro has instructions on how to install into a dual-boot environment.

    The best ever was right here on JL, written by Saikee, and he tells how to multiboot many, not just two.
