Linux is a multi-tasking operating system written in the programming languages C and assembler. It is very compact, fast and stable. The reason MS Windows is more popular is because of the 3rd party software available for it.
I use Linux most of the time. It's great if you don't mind fiddiling around with stuff on your computer. It's not nearly as user friendly as Windoze, but it does have much more flexiblity. If you know what you're doing, you can make it get up and dance for ya. Some of the internet applications can be a bit flaky, I still have trouble with flash and shockwave sometimes.
Still, I'd give it a shot. The internets are loaded with forums and help. That's how I learned. Have fun!
