I have an older laptop on which I would like to try something different. I know nothing about Linux at all. The computer is running Windows XP at present. I want to use it mostly for surfing the web, e-mail. I don't download music, movies etc. I create and maintain folders related to my hobbies and also do a fair bit of photography. The most important requirement is the ability to run wireless broadband (ZTE MF633BP+ ) as it is my main means of communication whilst on the road with our caravan. I also used Skype.
I don't have a clue where to start. I want something that is easy to use and fairly basic. Really appreciate any help.
