Hello mac and PCNetSpec,

It never dawned on me to look at software managers like that.  But that makes an awful lot of sense to me.  In fact, when I want to remove something, I often go to Synaptic to see what the program is called so I can remove and purge it correctly from the terminal.  So, if I reverse that idea, we have what you guys, including AndyInMokum, are saying --tried, true, and tested commands, codified into a manager.  Yes! ;)

So, I just went to Synaptic to look up Firefox browser -- and that's exactly what I installed, and hopefully without all the added baloney Synaptic likes to give me during an installation too!

And, yes, here's no question about it:  AndyInMokum deserves heaps of credit tonight.

Thank you all -- mac, PCNetSpec, rmj65, and AndyInMokum. 

This was conceptual blockbusting and genuine Linux mythbusting done at its best!  :)

Thank you, 

perknh

[T]here are a lot of people happily running Peppermint ICE which hasn't been receiving ANY updates for a while now .. and I personally would STILL consider that MUCH more secure than any version of Windows with up-to-date AV/Anti-malware ;)

As a registered OS X developer, I can see any part of the code i want.
That was the best part of the whole response - a real rip-roarer   :D.  It could only have been topped, if he made the claim he advises Tim Cook.  This bloke is the very definition of a, "buffoon"  ;).
