I have bought a new laptop, it uses windows 8.Bluetooh is paired, connect for a few seconds and then disconnect, the solution I found on the net is update to windows 8.1 but it costs 100 euros. I like linux and I want to install it I have not a lot experience using it but I love the philosophy around it.
Any recomendation about which version of linux should I install? I am looking for the easer way posible to use it, and of course make my bluetooht works
I prefer to focus on the impossible, because about the possible we already know too much.

Isaac -- you haven't really provided much information to work with, so it is hard to give good advise.
Answers to these might help:
- what model of laptop?
- does the laptop have BT built-in or are you using a USB dongle?
- what type of BT device?
- what is the make and model number?
- are you sure that the BT device actually works?
- is it supported by Windows 8?
- does it require any special driver or application?
- any error messages displayed?
- anything in the Windows event log?
Ubuntu is among the more popular of the distros for people who want an easy install. Although for testing and evaluation, you can use a live CD/DVD and not actually copy Linux to a hard drive at all. Knoppix was one of the first distros to offer that feature, but Ubuntu and Fedora also can live boot these days.
I've done a fair amount of Bluetooth work on Linux and there are some good tools. The main thing is to make sure that the Bluetooth adapter you're using is Linux-friendly. If Bluetooth is built into the laptop, I'd definitely check, since built-in I/O devices have a nasty habit of being windows-specific. Often, in fact, specific to a particular version of Windows.
