Re: Jumping Winblows to install Linux

I would suggest Windows First!

Re: java

Just to check if you have Java Installed go to http://java.com/en/download/installed.jsp click verify java version. If you have the most recent up to date version it will say Congratulations! You have the recommended Java installed (Version 6 Update 26). If you have no java installed it will tell you!
