   Is this too advanced for the new user?


   It is a guide for someone who has a windows computer that is installing
   Debian over it.

   There is also this e-book  / handbook


   Sometimes people  might find the task of making a bootable USB drive or
   CD or DVD a bit too dificult. In that case you could also point them at
   vendors of installation media.

   There is Free Software that can run on any platform.  A good starting
   point is to run something like Spacemacs or Emacs, Firefox,
   Thunderbird, and VLC are all great.

   I hope that helps you and the BPL patron out.
