Default To Linux users

I was gifted with a Chromebook for my birthday, and have been told by various sources that I may be able to make the most out of it if I can simply install Linux onto it.

My question is: How easy/difficult is it for somebody who's been primarily use to windows for their whole life to initially start using it for basic purposes such as internet browsing or listening to music? And then later on perhaps add some games etc?

For any of the most popular distributions of Linux, you will feel right at home. I'm currently using Linux Lite (what you should install on crappy, old computers) and it is pretty much just like Windows, but without direct compatibility with Windows software. If you are new to Linux (like me!) I'd suggest any distro based off of Ubuntu. Even the standard Ubuntu, which has a different graphical interface concept than Windows, is really easy to just load up and start clicking away.

For the basic tasks, you can easily jump right in and start using it on day one as if you had been using Linux your entire life. The main difference is when you get into using command lines and/or doing network administration, which it doesn't sound like you plan on doing. Either way, there are a shit-ton of forums where all you have to do is copy and paste what some more knowledgeable nerd posted at one point in time.

As for the easy/difficult, it's not that hard although you will need to learn some of the basic commands to run some applications is not entirely necessary but it's better to do the things on the terminal to run programs.

But in your case Ubuntu or linux Mint would be enough since you only want it for browsing and music.
For run games in Linux you will need to install/configure Wine and some codecs to play games and then that's it.

LOL, for me, most good games still won't work on Linux no matter what I do.

I also prefer Suse Linux to mint/Ubuntu.
