¨i need to know is if you need to do the type shit¨Do you mean do you have to use the CLI (Command Line Interface)? A while ago I found the book ¨Point and Click Linux¨ by Robin (Roblimo) Miller helpful. It showed how you can mostly get by using graphics. Being able to use the CLI certainly helps. At an introductory level it is mostly about Copy and Paste rather than actually typing in.¨if I need to know if I need to delete stuff and re-install it in Linux¨Many people dual-boot, at least for a while. That means they keep Windows AND install Linux. There are ways to read files from Windows and write them to Linux. If there are files you want to keep, then by all means keeps them. There are many programs in Linux which can read files from Windows e.g. OpenOffice can read Microsoft Word files in .doc format.
