it will work!

but you will not learn linux, you needbasic for now, you will be confused because most of the software are for forensic/hack tools which is for expert.

i suggest get a free vmware player and ask someone who have development or workstation to create the profile/virtual for you on either suse or linux. on vmware player you can't create a guest vmware, only play or run it. then start from a linux idiot book. or use the linux site to learn basic to advance linux, Linux Online - Free Online Books

it's up to you if you want to be administrator or just a desktop linux user...
