"You just have to be accustomed to it and accepting of
the software found in your desired distributions repositories. In
Ubuntu's instance there are nearly 2500 GUI-centered applications
and close to twenty-five thousand other packages which include
drivers, modules, and numerous command-line utilities. In that mix
of GUI apps you will likely find a suitable, equal, and often times
superior replacement for whatever Windows or proprietary software
you may have been accustomed to prior to your switch to open source
computing. Its often as simple as search, check, and install.
"The latest version of Ubuntu has attempted to simplify the
process even further and provide an app store/center like
enhancement which claims to be better organized and feature filled
than their previously used 'Add/Remove Software' utility."
