Hi,

are you saying that you want to download and run Linux? If so, you can download many different Linux distributions if you follow the link "Download Linux" in the top right corner. Note that most Linux distributions are completely Free, so there is no such thing as a "trial" version. You generally have the option to use a "Live CD" or "Live DVD" that you can boot from to give it a test drive without installing to your hard drive. Popular choices for new users include "Linux Mint" and "Ubuntu".

In addition to Evo2, you can use Virtual Machine such as Virtual Box or Vmware player to play with if you have a Win box.

Or you can purchase a new machine and install Linux.

"Linux" is not a program you try
it is the kernel
there are many different Linux based operating systems
have a look at distrowatch
http://distrowatch.com/

And there is NO "trial download site" it is free
although there are some operating systems that REQUIRE a paid for support contract
RHEL 6.4 ( Redhat Enterprise Linux 6.4 ) ,SELS/D ( SUSE Enterprise Linux Server/Desktop )

Since you probably found this site via Google...did you bother trying to put "how to download Linux" in there first???

Out of the 490 MILLION hits, the first is an instructional video. The second and third are links to Linux.com, listing the different distributions with links to them, and the third is to the Linux Mint site, where you can download a great version of Linux for new users.

Wikipedia is often helpful!
What is Linux? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux
What is a distribution? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux_distribution

Where should you start? Try these and see which you prefer:
