    gingerbread update is like upgrading your OS
    like windows for example, you have windows xp then you would upgrade to windows 7 for better features or performance

    Its free and u can download the official Firmware update through Samsung Kies.

    Samsung Kies should be installed prior in your PC.

    To clarify. you can download it HERE

    Its samsungs backup/sync/updating program.

    I would suggest you read this and the xda galaxy ace forum as some people dont like the update. (its very difficult to switch back if you dont like it)

    If you install Kies it will say update available if your carrier has released it. Not all update at the same time so while one person may have the update another may not.

    I would get used to Android and your handset, research the changes (and the bugs) and then decide at a later time if you want to upgrade.....
