Reformulation: How do I install and remove software?
A: This depends on your distribution, for debian you usually use apt(8)
For redhat, you run 'System settings / Packages' and get a package manager remarkably like windows' add/remove programs.
In [Ubuntu] there's an "Add/Remove programs" option at the bottom of the main menu.

If you really need to share files between Windows and Linux set up a fat32 partition they can both read. Or transfer all your files to a genuinely open and properly documented filesystem which [both OS's|http://www.google.co.nz/search?q=ext3%20windows] can share.

Q: What is all the crap that scrolls as Linux is starting, is it error messages?
