windows to unix

i have never worked with a unix/linux system, always with windows. I figured i would learn something new. My question is which version of either should i start out with with as little experiance as i have?

whatever's easiest to get a copy of... (and, I should add: free)

Too many Linux distros to name here...and too many zealous fans of each to bother naming one over the other. Otherwise, shell emulations on Windows exist as do virtualizations in a virtualization server running on Windows which could allow you to learn it all within your comfort zone.

Good luck!

Thank you for that quick reply. I got my hands on openbsd and with out thinking about it deleted my partition of win 7. and i think i will reinstall win and use the emulator like you suggested.
