Silence is golden. But personally i've never really cared much for gold ;-)
Anyway its a good practice to observe a community and what it interacts

Get some GNU/Linux CD's or DVD's. Select a distribution(there have been a
few posts this week about a good distribution to start with).

People, i guess we ought to help Raj out.

Raj, after you have decided on  a distribution just send a mail to the list
about which one you seek and i'm sure you will get a reply on the same. We
generally swap blank CD's/DVD's for one containg the distribution, the
exchange is done at a mutually convinient place.

and personally I hate microsoft's way of working.

welcome to the club :-)

To work in windows I need to keep myself trained in windows and for that
