1) What does Repos mean?

2) Where does all my installed application files reside? I mean, when i installed an application in windows, all the files for the application is in the Program Files. Where is "Program Files" in Linux. I'm using Fedora Core 3.

1. Repos = repository. A repository of packages for your package manager to download and install

2. All over the place. /usr/share, /opt, even /home/username - we don't strictly have a "Program Files" folder
