One of the best moves by Linux has been, without a doubt, the use from the very first moment of software repositories from which each distribution or development offers programs and packs that have been specially compiled. These software repositories can be accessed in various ways, and the easiest and most graphic method is Synaptic.
Once you have installed Synaptic (if your Linux distribution doesn't include it) and with the software repositories that you want, you will be able to access an extensive list of programs, utilities and packs that have been optimized for your Linux distribution. Once you update the list of files available, Synaptic show the correct one for your computer and distribution, and what's more, in the case that one program needs that you install another one (what in Linux is called dependence), Synaptic will tell you and install everything correctly.
To sum up, this development is very similar to online shops, a software that offers thousands of applications, assures you that they will work on your computer and if you want, it will download and install them for you. As easy as that!
