Hello All!
Thanks for taking a look. Okay.. I am wondering about good programs for SuSe 10.0. I mean: do I worry about spyway and viruses? Pop Up's? (haven't had any yet!)
What is also a good program for GUI's for Linux? This is crazy because I have to self install programs like the Java plug in and more yet to come.
What are good compilers for c#? I'm used to Visual Studio 2005 and 03..
I have Suse 10.0 64 and I cannot tell the differnce in the speed from a 32.. hmm..

So let me know and thanks for your advice in advanced.

Popups are still an issue, but using a good browser like Firefox can help deal with it. In general, there not a problem with viruses and spyware, but there are still security issues. It is important to not normally use a root account and to not use HTML mail (same as with all machines).

GUI is a graphical user interface, so what are you looking for?

gcc is a good compiler. Check out http://www.linux.org for various applications.

Unless you are doing something which is cpu intensive and that is compiled for 64 bit, you are not going to see much of a difference.

I am talking about Skins and Themes for Linux.

Thanks for the information because I have been using the root account. SO I will create another one.

The skins and themes would not be for "Linux", but for the window system, such as KDE or GNOME. There are a couple choices, but the default is fine for me so I have not bothered to check out that type of thing. You would need to check for what you are using.

For example:

http://webcvs.kde.or...artwork/Themes/

has some for KDE.
