You will never need to switch back.

Welcome to LQ.

And for your help here are some of the links for installing applications on ubuntu:

http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/installingsoftware
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/InstallingSoftware

If you know the name of a specific application, you can use Synaptic (System → Administration → Synaptic Package Manager).
The advantage to using these methods are that you will be automatically notified of updates.
You can select Third Party Applications from the Show list box in the Add/Remove... application to see available third party applications.
