Good afternoon, I've been working on understanding Linux for a few months now. My knowledge of the English language is very poor and that is why I use Google translate. I have to say: I'm getting better and better.
The software for linux is on a RaspberryPi 3 and I work on it via Putty. Sometimes I wonder if there are any restrictions on the rights through Putty.

Mint is a good place for the beginner to start, it's clean comprehensive, and is easier for newbies to pick up,
would I be correct in assuming you are somewhere in Europe?

I live in the north of the Netherlands.
To be precise in Vledder in the province of Drenthe

Ah, similar to where we live in East Anglia, flat mainly farm land, lots of drains and ditches [ probably not as big as yours] and away from too many of the city folk who like to move to the Countryside then try to change it.
I used to read a little Dutch, as 40 years ago one of my brick supplier's catalogues were only printed in Dutch, Never learnt to speak it though,
পার্ট ০১ঃ আমি আজকে দেখাব কিভাবে আমরা লিনাক্সে রুট পারমিশন এনাবেল করব।
এর জন্য আমাকে প্রথমে একটা কমান্ড লাইন ইন্টারফেসে গিয়ে টাইপ করতে হবে

Code:
sudo su

তারপর আমি আমার পাসওয়ার্ড দিয়ে এন্টার করব।
তারপর চেক করবো আমি এখন কি হিসাবে লিনাক্স টারমিনালে আছি এর জন্য আমরা লিখব।

Code:
whoami

যদি root দেখায় তাহলে বলতে পারবো আমি বর্তমানে root ইউজার হিসাবে আছি

You can always use one of the free translators online, then cut and past the translation to the relevant threads, we have quite a few members that do that

Hi Rashhedjr, that is exactly the same for me. I use Google translate for that.

Where did you get that gif in your signature? Its amusing and cute
We're getting new flooring in the bathrooms at work, so we have to use port-o-potties for the time being. When I using one earlier tonight, I realized that'd be hilarious if someone made a parody of Doctor Who where their version of the Tardis was a port-o-potty. I can see Family Guy doing that.
In need of help figuring out which form of Linux is right for me. I don't like Windows 10, and am not sure I like Windows 8. I much prefer Windows 2000 Professional or Windows XP Professional. I was told that Mint and/or Cinnamon might be what I am looking for. I am Tech, Computer, and Internet challenged, and all of the knowledge I have had is very out of date.

Welcome to the forums
with over 500 distributions of Linux, the choice can be daunting, things to take into consideration are the intended use, the age and specification of your machine, how beholden you are to windows, do you have MS programs that you MUST have?
Post your question in General Linux forum with as much information as you can and we the members will make some suggestions,

""Tech, Computer, and Internet challenged, ""....that was me some years ago......the statement also applies to at least 50% of nedw members.
Make life easy for your self....don't overthink the whole thing.
Take the course of least resistance.
Linux Mint will keep you feeling comfortable.

The people here will guide you when you either lose your way or screw up.

Welcome to Linux.org.
Latest Update 08 Jun 2022 - Cinnamon-XanMod and Xfce-XanMod both use the Refracta Installer
Both versions are based on Debian 11 Stable and uses the XanMod LTS Kernel 5.15.45 - It also has LibreOffice 7.3.3, VLC 3.0.16, Firefox ESR 91.10.0, Thunderbird 91.10.0, plus several other internal updates. It also uses the Refracta Installer, which requires some knowledge of partitioning to install
My friend's mom died a year and a half ago, and today would've been her birthday. To make matters worse, he's an orphan because he never met his dad either. To honor her memory, I was talking with him about donating clothing to an orphanage. When I was at work just now, I was asking my coworkers if they have any clothing they'd like to donate, and they either didn't or said they'll check.
Originally, I wanted to try out Zorin and possibly switch to it afterward, but because it uses SystemD (which I find to be invasive), I want to try Redcore instead

I actually work with Linux for my job, SystemV was fine but when Systemd came it worked and made things easier. If something else follows I'm happy to work with that but for now I think Systemd will stay for a while.

After learning more about stable vs rolling releases, I've decided Artix isn't for me because it uses the latter. Devuan is another distro I was interested in checking out though.

I developed gout in my right knee last night, and ended up going to the ER for it because my mom was going there too for consistent gastro problems. We spent practically all day there because the staff are unbelievably slow, and one of them even gave me a bit of an attitude. I have to recuperate for the next 5 days, which means I'll have to miss work, while my mom has to stay overnight.

Hope you get better soon. Might be a good excuse to watch sponge bob at worst.

I haven't done that yet. Because my dad has knee problems as well, I've been trying to find a friend who can come over and complete some chores around the house for us. Once that's taken care of, I'll work on some drawings I've been meaning to catch up on, and finish reading "I Am Spock" by Leonard Nimoy.

Because I couldn't find a friend to help me, and I've been taking care of my parents through an agency when I'm not at work, I called the agency earlier today and they said they'll find someone to send out. It wouldn't be a bad idea to ask my supervisor if she could have a caregiver come over when I'm at work, and then have me take care of them on my off-days.
Away in the North Island in NZ at the moment using an HP Notebook running Linux Lite 4 (Bionic based) 2 gig ram so pretty cheap machine that ran Windows 10 horribly - runs this really well and Linux Lite made the job of installing wireless easy through its easy to install guides.
