    No you dont have to buy linux to be able to use it. You can download Fedora,Gentoo,Debian,Mandrake that are different flavours of linux and use if for FREE.

    You can use dualboot if you still want to use XP and be able to run Linux when you feel like it. Then you just have to reboot you computer and bootup on linux. Look at the links below, download the iso:s and burn a booteble cd:s and then you are good to go!

    I recommend you to start with Fedora or Mandrake if you are a linux newbie...and then try the others when you are a little more experienced.

    Most linux software comes under some kind of free license but some you do have to pay for. Also you cant really say the advantges untill you know what you want there are lots off them but it depends on the context.
