Installing software is completely different for Linux, though.
Ubuntu is quite different from other Linux OS, in that it has the Synaptic Package Manager which is a GUI for installing packages from many online repositories. You can install and uninstall packages, all from a GUI interface very similar to Windows' Add/Remove Programmes. However, if you do want something highly specialised or a development release, your going to have to get your hands dirty at the console.

Ubuntu also manages software updates for you, so that all packages that are installed through the Synaptic package manager remain up-to-date, akin to Windows Update.
