It depends on if you want to have a full graphical operating system or if you want to learn to use the command line. If you want the full system, I would try Linux Mint or another "Windows friendly" Linux distros. You can just burn it to a DVD and try it out on your computer before installing. Or, if you want to jump into either a Unix or Linux command line, you could find a shell server or VPS to SSH into.
