Installing linux on a laptop with no OS



I have an old business laptop (Dell D820) that I would like to try linux on but the OS has been wiped (Ex government laptop).

Can I download linux on my windows laptop, copy it too a USB thumb drive and install it from there? If so how, and what is the most neebie friendly version of linux to install.

Thanks for any help/advise.
