Iam new to Linux and have a few questions.

Hello all, I am new to linux and I have a few questions.

1.How do I download linux to my pc or CD-R disc? I have looked everywhereon Linux.com and am unable to find the place to actually downlod Linux.

2.What are the main differences between Linux and the OS I am using now Windows Vista?

3.I have seen many different versions of Linux. Which should I download? I am looking for the type of Linux that is closest to the Windows Vista that I am using and that is the easiest to understand and use.

4.I have Trend Micro Internet explorer and Microsoft Office suite 2010 installed on my pc. Are both of those compatable and usable in the Linux OS?
