"With Windows, you can usually just go to a retailer, such as Best Buy, or to an online store, such as Amazon.com, and select from a host of purchasable software for your computer. Then, you simply insert the CD or DVD and install the software. However, with Ubuntu, and Linux in general, said method of obtaining software just doesn’t happen. Software for Ubuntu is obtained in a different, and easier, manner.

"After a fresh install of Ubuntu 9.10, you will notice a rather decent collection of software is already installed. Just browse the Applications menu to see for yourself. In that menu, you will find software to meet a host of needs: word processor, spreadsheet, Internet browser, e-mail client, text editor, image editor, music player, and several games. (That is by no means a complete listing.) While you may find use for all, or most, of these applications, there will undoubtedly be other needs you will want met via software."
