I have not ever used Linux (in any of its derivatives), but have considered playing with it. Specifically I have been looking at loading it onto my USB flash drive as a portable app. I have 2 questions: 1) What is the best portable version for someone starting out? 2) Where can I find tutorials on using Linux? it seems there are so many different versions, and are so customizable that there isn't much for learning material.
