I'd like to switch to Linux, but I'm scared I wouldn't be able to do it correctly. I've read a lot of posts online, but I'd like the opinion of /g/. I tried installing Linux on an old test laptop a while back, but the graphics were broken and many drivers were missing. I have a newer Toshiba Satellite, and I'm willing to try again. However, I don't want to mess up my computer and have no way of undoing it. Should I partition my hard drive at first until I am certain I could get it running properly?
I have no idea how to use Linux, but I'd like to learn. I only use open-source or free applications (LibreOffice, GIMP, Inkscape) as it is, and everything is available on many distributions of Linux. Can you recommend a distro and tell me what I need to do to set it up? Most of all, I don't want to ruin my computer. Thanks!

If you don't know; among other shit they pull, Facebook is heavily enforcing a real legal name policy. This means stalker victims, teens, drags, and anyone else who uses a fake name on FB has to change to a real name or their account will be deleted. Like, actually *deleted*, not 'closed'.
People can flag your page as using a fake name by the way/ FB will then ask for government ID's and legal docs with your name.
>But who cares about these faggots anyways OP?
You're missing the point.
People are taking this as a person attack, and on the lgbtqqwertyuabc community, and **are planing to leave Facebook en mass**. Once this starts every liberal, SJW, progressive, and anyone else who doesn't want to look anti-LGBT will follow suit.
>TL;DR: people are starting to leave facebook for good.
