First of all hi, I'm new about Linpus Linux.
IDK how to install some Application, like Yahoo Messenger, Utorrent.
Those program that I indicate are sample programs that I want to install in.
Please help me. Thanks.
Assuming you're on fedora as that silly little icon suggests run "yum install pidgin" as root (open a terminal and run "su -" then enter the root password) for a chat client which supports YahooooooOooooooOOOOO!!!!111 and as for bittorrent clients, there are loads available, but I can't recommend a good one. if you run "yum search bittorrent" you'll get a list of all applications for bitorrent so you can have a look.
Alternatively all this stuff is accessible via the software installation gui in the system administration menu.
Note that you can't install windows software directly, this is NOT windows, it doesn't run windows software. There are always siutable functional equivalents though.
