# 1  
this is going to sound really stupid, but i am new to unix and only have a tiny bit of experience with it such as typing in commands. that's about it. where can i get a copy of the unix software? isn't free to download somewhere?
# 2  
Yes it is free. and it's every were nowadays. This site offers "Redhat Linux with CD & Full documentation". see https://www.unix.com

if you are interested and experienced in large downloads there are lots of ftp sites that offers free linux downloads.
checkout:
http://www.redhat.com
http://www.linux-mandrake.com
http://www.debain.org
http://slackware.com

Since you are new to linux/unix Linux-mandrake would be nice one as a staring point. (it's redhat kde top on it)

you can also give a try to BSD UNIX http://www.freebsd.org


HTH

cool thanks

BTW: I grab much of my Linux code from the old site:

http://sunsite.unc.edu/

Perhaps we should upgrade the https://www.unix.com homepage to add links to the major download sites for each code base?

Or, create a FAQ section.......

What do you think?
