Noobie Help

Hello everybody! I have a few questions regarding linux in general. I'm not very good at using the software, considering I was brought up on windows. I'm wondering if there are any articles as to what I need to know. I have ubuntu running on my old pentium 3 computer but I want something that's faster. What would you suggest? And I'm not sure why but I cant get any of the programs I download for linux to work and I have no clue what the Ubuntu comparison is to a Windows .exe file..... Those are just a few of the things I'm dealing with and I'd greatly appreciate any help you could give me. If there are articles on what I need to know on any linux desktop distribution, I'd also take those. Thank you and I hope to hear from ya!
