Hello and Welcome to LinuxQuestions,

Ubuntu is about the easiest distro available in my opinion so it shouldn't be much of a problem getting used to it. Just work with it, get the feel of it and you'll see what I mean. The Ubuntu community also has some pretty easy to follow guides, read them to get to know how your new OS works. For example concerning your question about installing software, you can read this one.

Kind regards,

Eric

Just a spelling variant, I think. I'm guessing this comes from India.

In Linux, there is a system of repositories where the common SW is stored for each distro. This is accessed using a "package manager". In Ubuntu, I think they also call it the "Software center". Look thru your menus.
