Others have already mentioned the packaging using either deb or rpm
files, but you should also try downloading the various demo CD spins.
This will give you a quick feel for the various GUI options available,
and some of the software available.
See here for Fedora --> http://fedoraproject.org/en/get-fedora-options
Meanwhile, welcome to Linux, and I'm sure the penguin community and I
