I'm starting at ucd this fall and I need to get a computer.  I've never used linux before but I like the idea of a cheap operating system with 
open source coding.  Do you recommend I get a labtop with windows and partition the drives so I can use linux or should I just get linux?  
If just linux do they sell labtops with linux pre-installed or labtops without either windows or linux installed?  What version is best because 
the only one I've heard of is Red Hat?  Rad site, i think I'll join lugod if I ever learn how to use linux.  Thanks for any intel you can give.
