When you first download and install Linux (ubuntu) does it come free with Internet? If it doesn't where the hell in this whole wide world do you get it from?

Just like any computer wanting to connect to the internet, you will need to supply your own internet connection and they are not free.

Ubuntu comes with an internet browser, but in certain cases you will need to install additional drivers. I, in fact, just had this happen to me. I installed Ubuntu on a Dell Mini 10 and had to connect the netbook to a wired connection to download the correct drivers until I had wireless internet. Hope that helps. If you didn't already know this, once you have the netbook connected to a wired connection, you need to open the 'Hardware Drivers' app.

It is online. Go to http://ubuntu.com/ .You can either download the disc image and burn it, or request a free cd to be mailed to you (though that will take many weeks.) I think you can also pay for a cd that will come much, MUCH faster. Hope this helps.

Sorry, I read the question wrong... Yes, Ubuntu comes with the Firefox web browser. It should show the icon on the top menu bar by default. Also try Applications>Internet>Firefox Web Browser. As should be expected, you need your own internet connection. Make sure you have the drivers for your networking hardware.
