I'd say around 95% are free, while some have free and commercial versions, and again, the days of command line OS are pretty well gone,almost all Linux OS's have a GUI of some type....
for a list of a ton of Linux Distros, almost any of the top 10 will be ok...
My personal favorite is Ubuntu, but here's some others that are popular... Ubuntu has an easy setup, great software repositories, etc,
Go here for Screenshots of almost every Linux Distro there is....
Edit to add...Only other thing I'd recommend, is stay away from the really obscure distros, as you'll likely need help, and if you use some oddball distro, it will be hard to come across..
Ubuntu, Mandriva, PCLinuxOS, Suse, Fedora, all have a fairly wide user base, and most of the time help can be had with a simple google search.
Hope that helps...
