Because you only need to write
>sudo apt-get program-name
and then you can run it without any problem.

No need to learn how to code or search 14 different forums like you seem to think windows users need to do.

If it's still not there than you probably don't need it anyway. Especially if you're too retarded to be able to build the package yourself

I don't know how winturds can cope with this shit.
You have to be dedicated to struggle and fight with your OS like that
Shit and they have to pay over 100 bucks for it.
Not even macfolks are this retarded

Why did you install a headless server if you need to use a graphical application?

You don't ever do that though. Windows it's more like
> Go to website for program
> Download installer
> Type next
> Click text box
> Type next
> Say no to other software bundled
> Have installer download the program
> Click next
> Finish

At least that's how it is with some programs. Luckily there are some (few) programs that have "portable" versions. On Linux (Arch/Manjaro here) it's more like
> Open terminal
> sudo pacman -S install program
> press y
> press enter
> software installs
> close terminal or whatever and launch program
>>
