Yes I have installed ubuntu, and I have downloaded the stable version of linux. When I attempt to open the downloaded file it keeps asking me for the program to use to open the file. This is where I get lost. I have no experience using ubuntu or how to manage programs on its file system, but I want to get away from windows and need all the help I can get. Thanks.
