Ubuntu is fairly unique in the Linux world because the entire distro ships on a single CD. However, this means that initially you are stuck with Ubuntu's default software. This does not mean that you do not have access to any other software; quite the opposite, actually! Ubuntu has access to thousands of software packages through the other repositories.
During this chapter, we may look at software that is not initially available with a standard installation of Ubuntu. If you have not already downloaded and installed the software, just go to synaptic, search for the related package, and install it.
