Well, finally, I have made my mind and have really decided to learn Linux. I am installing Linux XP on a Virtual PC on my laptop at the moment. And, there are lots of unanswered questions in my mind...
1) Are these statements correct? "There are different OS cores made by different groups or organizations. They are called Distros (like Fedora and SuSE.) These cores do not include a GUI. There are different GUIs or Desktops for Linux too (like KDE.)"
2) What is the standard executable format in Linux. Or are file formats used in Linux in general?
3) Do all Distros/Desktops offer an install/uninstall tool as well? I think SuSE has something named YART which does this with a GUI (not sure if I can remember everything) Is it becuase SuSE has it in its core, or is it becuase KDE has it?
166 points for each question, to be fair.
