Windows XP will always remain my primary OS. I'm curious to see what the Linux Fedora OS looks like so I downloaded it yesterday. the problem is "finding it". I've never had this problem before. i had to use the Torrent download program to download a Linux based OS. The program is it's 1.3GB in size and it was shown as "finished" downloading in the Torrent dialog box. I closed that program and went to my desktop, which is where i download all programs to, but it wasn't there. I searched everywhere for it. I CAN'T FIND IT! I checked my hard drive size and it's definetly 1.3GB larger than before the download so Fedora must be in there someplace.
Anyone have an idea where I can look to find it? this is the first, and hopefully, the last time this will happen.
Thanks, Jim

There are a few things i should say here.

1. "desktop" doesn't hold that much and can get full fast

2. "everything" to your desktop is a bad idea

3. "someplace" well.. i hate to say this and it may not be true, but the last computer i fixed i was downloading a file to the desktop i realized that the desktop was almost full (data not icon wise) and it went poof. This may have been because the computer was infected though.....

Yeah most of what he said isn't true

The XP desktop has no size restriction

The only reason not to fill the desktop with files is a clutter issue

The main problem is probally that bittorrent downloads to someplace different than the browser

a search for iso files using the "*.iso" parameter should show you the directroy the buggers are in


and pay attention next time you download a torrent, it asks you where to put it

I have seen many errors where the desktop wouldn't hold enough for files, are you sure i am mistaken?

....wrong, if you have a lot on your desktop it can slow down your computer.

Oh, and searching for .ISOs is a good idea.

We don't know if every user has a good one or not, however, it uses the graphics card no matter what so there is no point in having a ton of stuff on the desktop. Anyhow, back to the topic... did you find the .ISOs?

Yes there is a point in having desktop shortcuts, look at what they're called, shortcuts. I installed something on my aunt's computer this weekend and she made me add shortcuts on her desktop. She (like too many other Americans) is too lazy to hit the "Start" button.

Topic: If you didn't find the stuff go to the Fedora website to get the iso's. The main ones are around 650 megabytes.
