    Why would you use windows versions of the program that also has linux version?

    WINE can run windows viruses, so be carefull. It will not contaminate Ubuntu Studio.
    If you install just free software, as you mentioned, you will not get any malware.
    There is no need for cleaning tool for WINE. Simple virus scaner will suffice, if you are looking for that.

    I would just like to point out that having a Firewall is really recommended, but usually you have this on your router or default gateway. If you are connecting directly to your ISP, without a firewall in between, you should think about getting one. It is possible to configure firewalls in Ubuntu as well, but usually, it's just easier to use a router for that.

    I don't know how possible it is to get Windows trojans or viruses through WINE. But, merely installing WINE should not pose much of a security risk. After all, it won't run until you start Windows software.

    LMMS has support for VST I believe, and it is only the 32bit version of LMMS that depends on WINE.

    Everything what is in the code of the program will be executed.
    But, you can not expect that win trojan will install it self and set self up to be run on every startup of the Ubuntu. Because it is not win OS.

    Re: Beginner needs help with Ubuntu Studio

    what version of Ubuntu Studio are you using?

    Ubuntu Studio 13.04 comes with LMMS preinstalled i.e. it has LMMS once you install Ubuntu Studio 13.04! Also, LMMS is for Linux only, why need Wine for that?

    As Jejeman pointed out: Please don't bother so much about windows viruses, as they cannot run in Linux environment and hence hardly poses any threat!

    Probably to use VSTs which depends on Wine.
