Cooking With Linux, episode 4 : Installing Software

Look around just a bit and you're going to find that there are lots and lots of Linux distributions. There's also an incredible number of software packages for you to download, install, and use, and most of them are completely free.

When I'm done, you'll see that it's not all that complicated.
