Limewire's got a Linux version, or you could use one called Frostwire. Just google them, you will find information and downloads :)

ubuntu has tons of software, maybe you can help yourself get answers by being more specific. Which software in windows are you looking for a linux program to be a replacement.

P.S. I saw your other thread which was closed because you were looking for cracked software. There is no need for that in open source. Tread carefully my friend!

well shoot away with the questions, we don't mind them. But when you just ask about software without qualifying what type of software or what you want to do with said software there really isn't much we can say to help you.

I hope you didn't take my post to mean I am upset you are asking questions because that is not true. Ask till your heart is content. We just request that you ask in a way which will be clear & definitive so we can get you the answers you need. Example of asking a question we can't possibly answer for you:

Answering your question, if a program is in .tar.gz , you open and extract it. You grab a terminal (Applications, Accessories, Terminal) and type 'cd nameofdirectory' which you just extracted. Then run './configure', let it finish, 'make' and then 'make install'. That is the general way. If it doesn't work, look on the folder, and there will probably be a doc folder, with tutorials and the such.
Hope it helps :)

NOTE: Only install a program this way if there is no other way to do it. Always try getting a .deb package or looking to see if it's in the repositories (run 'apt-cache search nameofprogram'.

Another tip: when using a .tar.gz file (or a .zip file for that matter), look for a file named something like "README' in the archive. When there is one, it will often (but not always) have information about installing and using the software.
