    Wine is more for running programs, it doesn't work for drivers as wine runs at a user level and drivers run at kernel level. With regards to installing AVG antivirus you would be much better installing clamav/klamav as
    • AVG is targetted at Windows
    • Under wine it will most likely only scan your virtual Windows drive unless you configure your drive setup to popint at your linux filesystem
    • With regards to antivirus unless you are on a windows network or downloading files for use on Windows you don't really need it - any existing linux viruses tend to be proof of concept only and don't spread very far


    The KDE vs Gnome argument is age-old. Both offer complete desktop environments. Neither will prohibit learning, in fact to really learn you might try working from the command line, even a terminal like gnome-terminal or konsole. It's rally a matter of preference. I believe last time a survey was run here KDE had about 60% of users and Gnome was about 35%. I personally perfer KDE but have been using Gnome the last month or so because it runs well with XGL.
