package management != compile in Linux

As ubuntucat pointed out in my last post (quite kindly I might add), package management is not the same thing as compilation. While there are projects out there that require compiling before use, it is now my understanding that the majority of the applications for Ubuntu are handled via package management.

In this entry, she describes how to manage packages in Ubuntu using the Add/Remove feature as well as the advanced Synaptic Package Manager.

Thanks ubuntucat!
