Trial of Linux? *Is Confused* All distros I've wanted are free from their web sites. Maybe I am missing something? o.O

I've never heard of a "Trial of Linux", you can go download the full version of almost any distro for free.

yes linux is free, but this way you can download the interface and see if you like it. If your a windows lover you can try it out and if you like it go download real version!

go the the kernal developers site, and u can get it free, free like a bird.

u'll get linux free anyway, even u can get it from anywhere, making copies of original CD's of one will bother. but it definately will lack support and manuals.

sprechen Sie Deutsches?
hehe anyway...
I think you're better off getting a bootable Linux CD so you can try it but not install it, so you can still have Windows if you for some reason don't like it
