Run Linux Software Programs and Linux Commands

As a new Linux user, you can make it easier to work with Linux, by getting a version of Linux that has a desktop. Using Linux with a desktop makes it much easier to run popular Linux software programs and get to the Linux command line prompt to run Linux commands. Linux Tips: There are several different Linux desktops and two of the most popular are the KDE and GNOME desktops. All Linux desktops provide the same general functionality (menus, icons and organization), but they have a different "look and feel" when using them. Try working with a few different desktops to see which one(s) you like best!
