    Linux is available to download for free from different locations depending on what distribution of Linux you use. It is opensource and cannot be sold for profit though you can buy disks with different distributions.

    A few places to look include
    http://www.linux.org/resources/categories/linux-distributions.18/
    and
    http://distrowatch.com/

    The Linux kernel itself can be fount at
    https://www.kernel.org/


    You probably want to look at the more popular Linux distributions for new users:
    http://www.ubuntu.com/
    http://www.linuxmint.com/
    https://getfedora.org/
