  Works perfectly
What works:

Web browser Firefox runs very well, easy to download and install software.

What doesn't work:

Unable to use Pidgin for Yahoo IM, unable to find out detailed instruction for the program.

What was done to make it work:

Searched database, asked friend who knows Linux better than I do.

Additional notes:

I would love to see a comprehensive tutorial on becoming proficient in Linux, and thorough training on all the programs and applications that come with the initial installation of the ISO file.
