I am a new linux user and i love a lot of things about the os but i dont like that its kind of a pain to install software. Can you guys explain how I can install software easier its just crazy is not like windows where you just click and go.I do like it because my pc runs a lot faster than on windows.

Fedora uses YUM as a pakage manager and i cant remember the name of the front end...

if you go to system -administration there is possably somting along the lines of pakage manager, or software manager there...

use that if you cant

otherewise issuing the command from a command line as root

yum install gtk-gnutella
will install one of the most populiar limewire clones for linux (that uses the same network as the origianl limewire)
