I had just got a laptop from my company which has Linux on it. I would like to know how to install a software from it. I understand nothing out here. I tried to search lots of option but nothing found in the menu. I am quiet familiar with the setup of Windows which is simply the next next thing, but there is a lot difference on the open source system. I tried to read some guides which states some command line procedure which goes above my head. Is it possible to run Windows based application on the same if yes then how to do that. I found some tools like Wine which lets to run the same, if yes then how. That can make my work my easier. I heard that you might need to update those packages to get better installation support.
