I have found where I can download KDE (right here)
, but I am lost in all these folders.
I know almost nothing about Linux; I have a friend who could help me with specifics, but he is a very busy person, and I need to do my homework and at least tell him what it is I want. He is one of those people who is stuck on what he likes and he is trying to impose his likings (which do not necessarily correspond with mine), besides his supply of Linux software is limited, too. So I would like to download stuff myself.
Could you please tell me what I need to download? All the folders, just some of them (which?), do they need to be in a separate directory or what?
Also: would I be wasting my time downloading Linux files under Windows?
