The right side is cut off. I get "Reply W" where it cuts off next to "Reply" on the bottom right of these comment windows. I'm using wubi.

I may be prejudiced, but I think you will be happier with a regular install instead of a WUBI. Also from your other post, it looks like you are a little light in ram to run Ubuntu, Lubuntu would run better.Registered Linux user #526930

is iso a zip? and other questions lubuntu
I actually found the "zoom" command under view in mozilla firefox.
I have downloaded Ubuntu, I am going to download Lubuntu after reading recent posts. I am using windows to (hopefully) burn it (something I've never done before).
Is an iso a zip file?
How do open it / which program do I use? edit: I am going to try FY-zip, great article on techie buzz for opening files but I can't post url's yet.
Is this okay to do with windows or even possible from wubi without setting up prigramming in it?
I LOVE OpenOffice and avast. They are running now in windows so am I correct in assuming they should run fine in Lubuntu?
Is avast even necessary in linux? Maybe until I understand more about partitioning?

There are virus scanners for Linux but are they necessary? I'm afraid the answer is both yes and no.
If you stick to installing software from the repositories and occasionally from a very trusted outside source; which to fair is a rare requirement anyway, then even though there is malware out there for Linux you limit the already rare possibility of infection further. If you are sharing documents with Windows users then you should probably run a virus scanner. Linux can act as a carrier for Windows malware and not scanning for it could be considered rude

do I extract the iso file?
Now I'm wondering if I even have a cd burner.
It's hard to imagine something better than OpenOffice! Awesome!
I'm on a home laptop so I shouldn't be file sharing! If I am, I don't know about it and there getting thier just rewards, lol.
I'm lost on the iso: I tried to open it and it said I had to extract it? So I downloaded FY-zip for that purpose. I will look for a cd burner...
edit: I can copy files to the cd but do I need to extract the iso first?
