    You can download most versions of Linux for free. I prefer to by a CD version accompanying a book so I have a copy on hand, though.

    Just go here:
    http://www.linux.org/dist/index.html
    It will link you to all the downloadable distro's. Yes the download versions are free. Note: For most, you'll need a CD burner to burn the images to up to three CD's. Some are less some are more.

    My advice to you is to buy a Linux distro since you are just starting to learn, SuSE comes with a lot of documentation. It costs money but it's worth it.

    Thumbs up

    You can download it free from any one
    of many locations.Go to Google. Type in "linux"

    or you can find packaged distributions in software
    stores.

    Often, when you buy a good book at a book store,
    it will also have the install CD.

    It takes quite a while to download unless you
    have a very fast connection.

    Even if you pay for a package, the software is free,
    inthe sense that it is legal for you to make as many copies
    as you want, and give them away, sell them etc.
    I came in to the world with nothing. I still have most of it.

    It all depends on how much more reading you want to do. If you read the FAQ's and HOW-TO's and do a lot of other reading as well you can get good with it fairly quickly.
