Installing programs? (General info)
How do we install programs/packages on linux? I am not a linux user yet. I just want to know if a person wants to install a new application will he download source code OR run set up programs to install the program like how it is done on Windows?
I think the windows way of doing things is something that leaves us in the loop. We don't know what is exactly being installed. Hence this may lead to problems like pop ups and lot of other problems, mostly without our knowledge.
