Ubuntu is a totally free distribution--not just in cost. Nothing proprietary comes with Ubuntu, not even proprietary formats, like MP3. You can enable them one by one using this guide:

http://ubuntuguide.org/#codecs

The Ubuntu Guide also has a bunch of other useful stuff in it.

Someone also wrote a script to install a bunch of popular proprietary stuff:

By the way, in the future, you may want to do Google searches like this one. They're very helpful, as most of your questions are not new.

Dude, calm down. The exclamation points are so unnecessary. In the time it took you to type that message, you could have read carefully the first link I gave you, which has another link to how to add extra repositories. Read it carefully.
