Actually, I know little about VPN.  I was asking, in the hope that I could
learn more - and also it was suggested (I'm not sure where) that using a VPN
with Tor was better than either alone.  Maybe it would help if someone
explained VPN - its good and bad points.

So the replies I've received are what I was looking for, mostly.  I just want
to be anonymous when browsing the web - if Tor alone can accomplish that, I
will be satisfied.  Too many companies track everything you do on the Internet
(including ISPs), then sell that information.
