I am obliged to install Linux on my laptop (which is just an average latop, an average person (not programmer) would have).
I have win7 (downloaded from msdnaa).
I guess I have to go for a dual boot.
People suggested Linux mint.
I am good only in the terminal in Linux (I am accessing the Linux Lab of my uni, via Putty and winscp). That's it. I do not know anything else on Linux. NOTHING!
If someone has to suggest something, please let me know. Moreover, if someone knows links in how to install and configure the dual boot, please let me know. I am looking for my "Hello world\n" in Linux!
