Hello there people of the Linux community!

I want to try Linux out on my Toshiba satellite laptop computer.

I have the .iso file ready and a USB Thumb drive

My specs: Windows 8.1 Intel Core i3 500GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 3000

My PC did not come with Windows 8 pre-installed; It had Windows 7 which I update to Windows 8 and then updated to Windows 8.1

How can I install Ubuntu?

(I haven't touched the partitions or anything)

Can I use WUBI?
