Coming into the second problem, which I faced was downloading applications directly from internet and trying to install them, just like I do in windows.But that created a lot of problems ,and I need to follow a lot of steps from terminal also to install the required application.Here where I came to understand the power of Ubuntu Software Center which lets you choose and install thousands of free applications directly from the internet with out the need for you to follow any steps .But sometimes, even with proper authentication I could not install certain applications telling me that there is some authentication failure. I cleared this problem with going to System-->Administration-->Synaptic Packet Manager and installing the required software from there.All the software that can be seen in Ubuntu Software Centre is also available there .

  1. i hav an explanation
    generally the softwares available in ubuntu siftware center are frm ubuntu repositeries (storage like an ftp)
    but there are some softwares are from a third party (not ubuntu )
    to install any third party software one need to add its repositery . .
    if already added one need to authenticate it by adding a key certianed for it
    if the key was not added it says error that it cannot install
    but any software can be installed from synaptic manager
