    I think if you are new that you should stick with official sites.

    Please don't derail the OPs question with debate around third party sites.

    Re: new to ubuntu

    My best suggestion would be to install VirtualBox and a virtual instance of Ubuntu (same flovour). When following any 3rd party guides run them in the virtual machine first, so you don't damage the main OS. It can save you some time in the long run, I've learnt the hard way many times.

    As for the UI just take time getting used to it. Ubuntu is one of the best OS's (imo) now with the whole ecosystem. Take full advantage of it - Ubuntu One/Music.

    Let us know how you get on and educate us on your experiences.
