    There are a multitude of Linux options out there, Bill.
    Probably the most popular one amongst The Funsters in Linux Mint.
    Even within that there are various distribution.
    Probably the most "Windows" like is Mint Cinnamon - https://www.linuxmint.com/download.php
    @Gromett tends to favour the "cut down version" Xfce

    I have 3 machines running this linux. It's hard to tell the difference to Windows in use but definitely no grief. The machine I'm using is of course Mint.
