Darn, i messed up the topic title, it is supposed to be "basics". Sorry. Anyway, here goes:
Im new to linux and i am starting with DSL. Really cool distro. I've been doing a lot of reading on linux, in this forum and elsewhere but i didn't find the answers i was looking for.
Apt-get is a command, right?
To install applications for my linux, in my case DSL?
If it is, how come it works with DSL if it was made for Debian?
Some other questions, not in relation with apt-get:
Can i get other applications installed for my DSL which arent donwloadable through MyDSL?
If yes, how? (I read some stuff about wine for win32 appz to work under linux).
If yes, how do i know which app can be installed to DSL? (for example: skype is not in MyDSL list of appz however DSL-N already has it.)
Forgive my ignorance, i am a noob.
Please answer the questions here, dont send me to general linux sites with general instructions, because i want to learn how to use DSL.
BTW i got DSL 2.4
