I used Debian Linux for a number of years. *I recently got a new HP computer running Windows 7, which gave me minimal problems, aside from annoyances (Microrsoft is very good at being annoying.) *Anyway, I expect to return to Linux very soon (not Debian, but Aptosid, since it's more up to date.) *I have a high speed connection but I will be starting from a CD. *Do you have any suggestions?

Back in the day I used to download a version of Debian over a 56K modem (that rarely
achieved those speeds) I used to set it to downloading around midnight and get up
the next morning and it was usually finished or almost and if it had stopped in the
night I just restarted at that point, but it did get done and the ISP didn't
Of course I don't know what kind of data transfer restrictions you may be subject to
if any but patience is still free.
