On Linux, you install software from package management applications like the Ubuntu Software Center. But not every piece of software is available in your Linux distribution’s software repositories.
The repositories on Ubuntu,Mint etc are becoming better and better and serve users well especially those new to Linux. However the article contains lots of useful info.Thanks
Love Ubuntu/Linux and I'm always looking at new programs to evaluate/see if it can fill a niche, or, just because it looks different. This is good info and gives me more to work with.Thanks!
