I have Ubuntu 10.01 LTS on my computer. I am totally inexperienced with Linux...
1a) Does Ubuntu come with a firewall?
1b) Is it turned on by default?
1c) What is the name of the software and where do I find it?
1d) If Ubuntu does not come with a firewall, which one do you recommend? (Something with a GUI, please!)
2a) In the near future, I am planning on setting up a network with another computer that has Windows installed. Will I need to have anti-virus, anti-spyware installed on my Linux computer to protect from possible viruses etc. coming from the Windows computer? (The Windows PC already has a firewall, anti-virus, anti-spyware software installed)
2b) What software do you recommend?
