I'm a noob trying to play around with Linux. It's very difficult to install a program so far. It seems like you have to compile the code or something. Is there any easy way to install a program like the way its done in Windows?

You can install .exe files with this free open source program:

That's only for running windows programs on Linux. For installing Linux native programs see: http://www.faqs.org/contrib/yal/page7faq.htm

I reccomend that you start your linux experience with Ubuntu (www.ubuntu.com) because it is the easiest to pick up once you feal comfortable you can move on to other distros and there you will have to use the command line more but once you get the hang of it, it will be like second nature. i am glad that you are trying linux I am making the switch as well and tecker will allow us to help each other out
