I'm currently working on Windows 64 and Ansys but would like to try Salome.
I've tried to launch Salome 6.5.0 for win32 but it doesn't start on my Windows64 (as I supposed before...)
So I need an other OS and I'll install it on an other hard-disk.
I suppose it would be better to have an other HD with Linux, instead of win32.
So, what is the most simple Linux distrib to use for beginning ?
(I've never installed or tried to use Linux before so I would like to know a simple way, not the most powerful).
Then how to install Salome ?

with a 64 bit machine the easisest way for a try out is to use the live cd of CAELinux which you can download here
there is everything in it for a starter, more generally this site contains many things with tutorials etc...
later you can choose your distribution with better knowledge
many use Ubuntu, i have been using openSuSE for 15 years now
