LINUX Operating System

I have been offered a trial download/install of this OS but do not know anything about it.I would welcome comments from users as to whether it is a better alternative to Windos 7 which I have only purchased recently.Apparently it is possible to run it side by side with Win7.

Most Linux distros are free and as said above Ubuntu seems to be one of the more popular because it is close in appearence to windows.

"It was only a one day offer". Alarm bells start ringing. I would not touch this offer. Linux is freely available any day. If you are interested in trying Linux, I suggest you look at this site:link text

This page contains links to different ways of installing Ubuntu. If you create a CD or USB stick to use for installing Ubuntu, you can use it to try Ubuntu without installing, you are given the option when you start your pc. This will give you a feel for the operating system before you commit to installing Linux.

Am I wrong but don't you have to pay for Red Hat?
