Thanks alot for the responses guys. Ive started doing exactly what some of you suggested. First thing I did was customize the desktop with a couple of cool features. And then I installed some software that i thought i would like. Next thing i would like to do is perhaps setup some security. Ive never set up security for linux, although im sure Ill be able to figure it out, I was wondering if you's know of any good software or any good suggestions that would help me secure my linux.

You really don't need a lot. But if it makes you feel better, check out iptables (installed by defualt on most distros), Firestarter (firewall), etc. Linux is not as vulnerable as Windows....
