Recommend Linux Distro to Learn Linux?
I'd like to learn Linux from the insides, so I want to install a Linux distro on an unused laptop. I first want to learn how the Linux OS is structured the way I understand how Windows OS is structured - for example I know what C:\windows is for, where programs are installed, what a .DLL is, what the registry does. So I'm looking for a Linux distro that will teach me those basics, the terminology, how Linux drivers work etc.
For all I know any Linux distro will do this and this is a foolish question, but if it is, it further shows my level of newness!
Thanks for any help anyone can offer.
