    I just wanted to get people's opinions about Lindows before I gave it a try. Also is it a free distrobution? And where can I get it.

    it's not free, but it's fairly cheap. From what i understand, Lindows is an OS for complete PC novices. It's not a disto you want to get if you are at all serious about learning Linux. It's the kind of OS you would install for your grandmother that can't afford the over-priced Windows.
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    i fail to understand that why would any want to buy Lindows.
    though what minibubba seems to be the only valid reason of buying Lindows but still if you want to buy some thing cheap you should go for XandroS Deluxe edition. it is a bit costlier compared to Lindows but at least it will give you crossover office plugin that allows you to run most of the Windows programs without much fuss.
