The latest windows 10 will run ubuntu, fedora, suse Linux straight from windows store. For learning purpose I'd choose Ubuntu.

But then you have not a "real" system. A system where you can configure the bootlooader by editing a text file, for example.

Keep in mind that Ubuntu, Fedora and Suse from the Windows store is a Linux "subsystem". *nix and Win10 don't interoperate 100%. However, for learning bash and getting one's feet wet with the Linux command line, it's a fair starting point.
