Programs and apps in Elementary OS


Hi,
I want to install linux on my laptop by I can't decide between Ubuntu and Elementary. I read that elementary is based on Ubuntu just another GUI, so does that mean every app and program that was meant for Ubuntu I can install on Elementary? Is it full compatible?
Thanks in advance.
