One of the things about the free software world is that you dont have
the artifical issues about cost to consider. Most newbies try a few
distros, try a few windowmanager, a few text editors, etc. With the
issue of cost out of the way, it all about find out what works for you
and even pitching in to make something even better by making a tweak for
your own needs and sometimes giving that back for others to enjoy. 
I'm currently using xfce4 as my system has 256mb and xfce is gaining
some nice integration. Free software extends your investment in hardware
by maybe double.
