Linux is "free" per-se. Obviously theres the downloading and burning of CDs which are not free but if you mean to go and "buy" linux with money, then it is free.

RedHat / Suse are not free (but Fedora / OPen Suse are) but these have much propriatary closed source programs in them

There are also paid softwares for linux (Cedega / Crossoveroffice ect) but by and large the operating itself is free.

If you are new to Linux, Grab a copy of Knoppix, Kubuntu to give them a try without having to wipe your hard drive
