[OCLUG-Tech] A Newbie

I am a very long time user of Windows and before.  I now want to try Linux.  I have old laptops and older computers with outdated windows and would love to breath new life into them even if only for an experiment.  Is there a hands on course on Linux for beginners from downloading OS to installing and using?  If not is there some kind person in showing me the way?  I would love to get away from Windows.  I do have some window programs that I sure wish I could use in Linux, like some Cadd programs and video editing programs, can I use them or are there Linux programs that do the same?  Some many questions and lots of time to play.
