Programs


Ok I've just recently installed linux for the first time and I like it sooo much better than Windows XP, but i'm getting really frustrated on how to install programs. I don't have the slightest clue on how to do so. I searched the web for a while and the I came here. Can anyone tell me how I can install programs on Linux. I've downloaded some but is there something else that I have to use to install them??? lol
