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!
