I cant even install a program on Linux. I would like to run linux, but my patience and its lack of game support keeps me at bay.
Who cares? Not Microsoft, like I said.
But I do, and I eventually got tired of that niggling feeling I guess people of conscience get when they use software acquired through dubious means. Using Linux allows me not to worry about that kind of thing.
Never really used Fedora, but I know that in Ubuntu to install a program you just double-click on a .DEB file, just like in Windows with a .EXE.
I can't vouch for whoever taught the Fedora class you took, but if they didn't even cover installing an application in a useful way, try a different teacher next time.

Well, you're in the clear, then.
The few times I've used Windows Server, it hasn't seemed that bad, especially the new 2008 version. I just prefer Linux to get around any licensing hassles, especially since I don't have any friends who run servers professionally.
