Hi Rick, Welcome to the linux world!

Be aware that there is an expectancy of payment in the linux society as 

Not necessarily in economic terms, though many software creators ask for 
donations or encourage subscriptions, bughunting or other contributions.

But you have to pay with your time. If running windows compares to 
driving a Volvo, running Linux might compare to driving a scooter, a 
racing car or a digging machine - all depending on your needs and 
wishes. In any case, expect a learning curve and make sure you've got 
some time to invest.

If you do, then try some of the USB live distros available. Many meet 
some or most of your requirements (those regarding privacy and security 
will mostly be the responsibility of the user on ANY system), but they 
look and feel very different.

Good luck, and let us know your decision. I'm curious!
