Download Linux

Do you know where i can download fedora for free ? I downloaded a lot of unix-based free software and recorded them in a lot of cd's but finally i can't use any of them because my system says my software are 'cracks',not-yet-incompletely-downloaded ones.
I use windows and I don't know how to md5 check to test if what I have downloaded is operatable. Is there any other way around helping me deal with this anyway ?

I also think that linux, because it is a free software, should be more insecure than windows ? It is just like a browser that, if not updated on time, leaves a security hole for those who created or understand it well to get all of information on user's computer ????

Thanks

Linux is much more secure than windows. The only issue with linux is that most software companies do not make software for it; however, there are a large number of free alternatives for software, and there are programs that run some of the popular windows programs (wine, crossover office).

You can download fedora core from playboy.com: http://mirrors.playboy.com/ [Broken]

What browser are you using? It works fine on firefox for me.

Try some of the mirrors from this link: http://fedora.redhat.com/download/mirrors.html [Broken]
