I just recently discovered Raspberry Pi.

I just want to know, if I want to install Linux on the Raspberry Pi, do I need to download and extract the NOOBS file from a Linux PC? Or Can I just use Windows and then on setting up Raspberry Pi, just choose RASPBIAN?

You will need to flash the Raspbian image on the SD card. I would recommend using NOOBS if you are new to linux and Raspberry PI

Here is a tutorial. I know links are frowned upon, but there is too much on the tutorial page to repost here
