Can i change my choice from the free linden home to the free land option?

Question

Yup.  Very easy.  Stand in the house and pick up all your stuff, one thing at a time until it is all safele back in your inventory.  Then open World >>> About Land >>> General and click Abandon Land.  Then you're free to do anything you want.  You could register for a different Linden Home --- you can change homes up to 5 times a day until you finally get it right --- or you can buy a parcel anywhere else on the mainland and apply your 512 sq m land feewaiver to the monthly fees on that parcel.

Linden Homes are fine as starter homes, so that you have someplace to live, decorate, and learn about SL before you make the investment in your own land and buildings.  As a private landowner, you have a lot more flexibility about where you live and what your property looks like (and what you can do there).  You don't have to restrict yourself to the Minland, either.  You can rent or buy anywhere in SL.  Your land fee waiver won't do you any good if you are renting from a private estate owner instead of getting your land from Linden Lab, but there are loads of good reasons for living on a private sim.

I suggest reading http://community.secondlife.com/t5/English-Knowledge-Base/Buying-land/ta-p/700043

and http://community.secondlife.com/t5/English-Knowledge-Base/Build-Tools/ta-p/700039

 and then taking Lindal Kidd's free class in land management at Caledon Oxbridge University in world at 5 SLT next Friday evening.
