Start with linux Mint, get a usb, burn the iso onto the usb, boot into the live usb, install it, use libre software, it's fairly easy and as long as you don't game on your computer you will be fine

Can I truly replace Windows with it?
Not if you like games

Just install VMware or VMbox, you can experiment with any OS you like without having to commit to it.

the biggest problem people face is trying to start with debian, gentoo is much easier for begginers because it contains the auxilliary standard system framework.

Pop-os, linux mint, manjaro are the best for beginners i think, but try to learn how to get a good workflow going with tmux + a normal desktop enviroment and stuff like that or just a window manager, search for thos terms and go down the rabbit hole its great and you will be suprised how clean your workflow and get its insane compared to windows plebs

Just pick a popular distro, install it and start using it. I hear Mint is accessible. When you come up against something you don't know how to do, just look it up on Duckduckgo. This is literally the only sensible way to learn how to use any OS.

can I replace windows with it.
You will never create windows with Linux. It is a different computer system. Can you do all the things you want to do with Linux. Yeah probably, but it will be done differently. I hope you like fixing computer problems though, because there will be times when you want to watch a movie and Linux will be like "no let's solve a tech problem first :D." Running Linux is like having never ending non stop mandatory CS class homework.

replace windows, unlikely unless are willing to use the open source alternatives or just browse the web. if you want an easy one, pick a debian based distro like ubuntu, mint, elementary OS, or you could use manjaro. also, you should use virtualbox or vmware because it allows you to run whatever os you want without committing to it.

Depends.

For gaming Linux is pretty shit, although not nearly as bad as it used to be.

If you're a web developer or mostly use software that happens to have Linux support then it shits all over Windows.

I definitely prefer Linux over Windows but have to admit I still use Windows at least 30% of the time especially if I want to play games.

If you have a purpose for Linux then I reckon you'll love it.

But if the intention is just to play around with it and get your games up and running - *wavers hand*

It is however, much, MUCH, smoother and faster than Windows.

Linux can't replace the gaming side of Windows.
If you still want to try Linux, try Linux Mint as a starter. It is very user-friendly.

Of all the places you can find that shit out you thought here would be best? No wonder they deleted your post.
