A few software questions


If I download a file and it is in a zip folder, is it easy to unzip it? I like to download various movies and sports sometimes.

The couple of main programs that I use are below. Just curious if they are compatible?

VLC
ConvertXtoDVD
Jdownloader
Pandora
PlayOn

Thanks for any help I receive.

You can download a Linux and run it completely
from your CD\DVD\USB drive to check it out e.g:
http://distrowatch.com/search.php?os...&status=Active
2nd link in my signature will help getting started as well.

Linux can do it all.

Search all those programs here:

I know VLC and JDownloader work fine as they are FLOSS and I have used them.
