Hi Arati,

I would suggest against getting the CDs from the PC magazine you have
in mind. Your research on the net has in my opinion led you to the
correct conclusion that Ubuntu is a good distribution for beginners.
So just keep looking for Ubuntu CDs. Amit Karpe has sent a useful

You can always get help on this mailing list if you ask questions
properly (http://plug.org.in/mailinglist.php and

can ignore most of the replies which have nothing to do with the
question you ask (like this one? :) )

Hope this helps.
