Adding new programs is easy with Ubuntu’s app store like Ubuntu Software Center.
Another neat Ubuntu trick is that, using the Software Center, you can synchronize applications between Ubuntu desktops. This way you can have the same apps on both your desktop and your laptop without going to a lot of extra effort.
Ubuntu still has some rough spots. For example, while it uses the latest version of LibreOffice for its office suite, LibreOffice’s menus aren’t integrated into the Unity menu system. It works just fine, but it doesn’t quite the way other, better-integrated, programs do.
