    Hello,

    I want to get an Linux distrib on a old computer to learn how to use it, but I really don't know what distrib to choose. I heard about Ubuntu, a good choice for beginner or maybe Debian... What do you think ?

    What are you computer specs? That would help narrow down your options, since there are so many different distributions of Linux.

    Some popular ones are:
    Ubuntu
    Fedora
    Debian
    Puppy Linux
    Linux Mint (my personal favorite)

    If the machine is significantly older, then a smaller-footprint distribution like Puppy would be the way to go.

    If it's only 'last year's' model, then I'd recommend Mint
