1). Should I install Debian etc instead and if so, do I need to remove Ubuntu?
2). Should I keep doing the terminal routine to install
3). Is there a location where some of these apps are mainly for Ubuntu users?
4). Should I go back to Windows?
Ubuntu has an excellent Package Mgr that should make installing Software a breeze. Look under System/Administration/Synaptic Package Manager.
Ubuntu is a great first distro if you ask me... You don't say which version of Ubuntu you downloaded and installed, but I'll assume 6.10 Edgy..
That FAQ will get you through about anything.
