Theoretically, Linux is free... download, turn it into a bootable disc and fire for effect.
That has never worked for me.
I buy Linux Mint from these guys:

Over 20 years using slackware here myself.
Although I certainly wouldn't recommend it to a new user these days.
Even some cowboy and indian outlaws in the 1800's eventually stopped sleeping under buffalo skins, and came to town to entertain paying customers. For some I imagine the bruising of their ego never healed.

We all have some scar tissue that never lets us completely forget the intent of the adventure.
