The command line(CL) can be very useful today and, as you know, in the early days, everything was CL based........if you are more comfortable with a GUI then you be be spoilt for choice with all the distros that are currently available.
Are all Linux programs command based or are there some that are similar to windows where you don't need to type in a command every time you want to access a file?
If you like learning from books then there is no shortage..just fire up your favourite search engine........However joining a local Linux user group is a quick simply and friendly way of sharing help, and ideas.
If you want a distro that is familiar to Windows users then I recommend you start with Ubuntu........... All Linux users have their favourites so expect folks to chip in with their "best distro"....as always its your choice.....
If you don't have a dedicated machine that you can use for Linux then you could have a dual boot arrangement.......but as a first step I suggest you try running Ubuntu Live.........that is running it entirely within RAM so nothing is written to or from your hard drive......in that way you will be able to try it out without altering your machine in any way, and see how easy it is.......
