ubuntu laptop

I'm trading in my work Powerbook for a Thinkpad so I can run Linux. I just installed Ubuntu and, to be honest, I'm a little freaked out: X just came up with sounds playing, applets showing my battery life, wireless signal strength monitors, and my software is just "sudo apt-get install logjam" away.

Update: ok, double freaked out. I clicked an icon in the tray and it popped up a "these updates are available to install" box, and the "details" dropdown actually shows what's new in the ChangeLog.
