New Acer inspire one with Linux Lite
My sis has just bought this lappy and is now asking me for help. She didn't realise it came with Linux for a start and I have no experience with it either. I have had a search for anti-virus software/firewall and have found lots of info saying I do not need it but lots of very complex computer talk too. Is this version still just as safe as it is a lite version? If I do not need AV do I need a firewall? If I do need one of either is there any lite programs that would not slow down the system too much? This lappy will be used with a wireless bt home hub and files will be moved between it and a windows laptop.
Please feel free to just post links for me to look at, as I'm sure this question has been asked a hundred times.
