i agree with maynard. a windows computer >can< be secure. the malware coders are counting on the people that dont practice, know, care or use apps/features to secure there own computers.
i created a small 2nd partiton on my HD, then installed Mandrake on it. can boot into linux or windows at startup. i tend to use both. there are some apps i need windows for.
mandrake was very easy to install. updating and installing software is alot different in linux so is the file structure.
BeatrIX linux runs entirely from the bootable CD.

Having played around with Linux for several months I can tell you that it all depends on what you are using it for seeing as how there are hardly if any retail programs made for Linux. I would take the advise of the previous post and get a live cd to figure out if Linux is for you.
I agree, there are many different versions of linux and it all depends what you are wanting to do with it.
If you are just starting out I would have a look at Mandriva which has a nice interface and is rather easy to get around with and as far as internet is concerned I highly doubt you will have any questions here
You maybe thinking is it easy to install fresh? it couldn't be easier, all you need to do is put your live cd in and boot off it and load into Linux then you can install it from there and doesn't take long at all
