<script> vs <link>

RE: <script> vs <link>
I'll ping Dave Artz and have him weigh in on the <link> vs <style> results but just looking at your test results it does look like <link> causes IE7's renderer to not open up the extra parallel connections and <style> is indeed faster. Be interesting to see if the same holds true with IE8.

As to the CDN's,

You can try Velocix -

They offer free CDN services up to 500GB per month. From what I can tell though it's built on top of S3 and every time I have seen someone run a performance test trying to use S3 as a CDN it actually seemed to introduce more latency rather than eliminate it. It's worth testing though.

Coral Cache is technically a CDN but it is more for dealing with crushing load spikes rather than increased performance and also generally slows down your pages if you use it.

Another viable option though not entirely free (but REALLY cheap) is to use something like SimpleCDN where you pay a fee per object (as low as USD$0.10) and there are no bandwidth or download limits.
