I am a skilled at using Windows operating systems but I have never had a chance to play around or learn anything about Linux. My family has an old Desktop computer that has been running XP service pack 3 that they have finally quit using. It is a very basic system they bought in the early 2000. They are allowing me to play around on it before we get rid of it. I would like suggestions on a distro that would allow to get my feet wet without immediately jumping in over my head and be able to run on an older computer. Any other suggestions that could help during this learning experience would be greatly appreciated.
