|Ubuntu Software Center|
Take to the Ubuntu Software CenterTo actually use Linux you have to throw what Microsoft has crammed down you throat for the past 20 years, that you need to use their products. Can you get Microsoft Word? No. Do you need it? No. You need to understand that there are alternatives for everything.
- Microsoft Word - Use 'Google Drive' or 'Libre Office'
- iTunes - Try 'Banshee' or 'Rhythmbox'
- Internet Explorer - 'Firefox' or 'Google Chrome' (I recommend this on windows too)
You will find there is a learning curve, perhaps a week or so of frustration... but you will be a happier computer user in the end.
If your stuck feel free to shout me out on Google+ or take to the Forums and ask! Next see my post on what to do after installing Ubuntu.
