dude: How do you install software on Linux?
me: Linux has a build-in online store of software, were you can search for almost any type of software. Have you ever used iTunes to buy music?
me: Well Linux has a similar tool for getting software, except all the software is free. It's called synaptic (or insert other GUI PM), let me show you.
me: In Windows, to install software, you usually have to go to a retail store and buy a CD or go to a website, like Adobe.com to download and install Acrobat Reader and/or then go to mozilla.org to download and install thunderbird. Well, if you were to buy music the same way it would be like going to the U2 website to download their new album and then going to Coldplay's website to download their music, etc. The reason iTunes is so popular is because it's this one-stop-shop for music. You don't have to go hunting the web or a retail store for your music.
dude: Yeah, that makes sense.
me: Well, synaptic on Linux is like iTunes, where it is the one-stop-shop for software on Linux.
dude: I like it.
me: So, that is how you install software on Linux.
