I’ve a friend who’s saying “I need to upgrade to Windows 11”.

I’d like to be able to say, “You should give Linux a go”,
but I can’t think of a place to refer her to.

Installing Linux for the First Time is a big deal for Microsoft Only users… 
Once you understand the terms & concepts, there’s enough material
for self-support available, at least for most people.

If I was in Adelaide, I’d send her along to “ITShare”.

But I’ve struck a blank in Canberra.

The PCUG “Linux Learner’s” SIG - I know nothing about it
and am not sure they are more than enthusiasts meeting & chatting.

Any hints?
Any stories of what’s worked or not worked for others?
