Suggestion for Ubuntu

A very, very humble suggestion.
I know nothing about programming. I am just a new Ubuntu user trying to
figure out the Linux world.
Coming from Windows, the most shocking ferature of Linux distros was the
impossibility to install and uninstall programs the one-click easy way. Of
course, once I learned how Synaptic works, I quickly understood the
superiority of this way of doing things. But my first reaction when I needed
a program, such as RealPlayer, for instance, was to download it from its
website. I downloaded a tar.gz file to my desktop, clicked on it, and went
nuts when nothing happened. I overcame that. I'm a happy Ubuntu user now.
But, even so, wouldn't many new Linux users feel more compelled to pursue in
their discovering of Ubuntu if it could deal with those packages more
efficiently? Will Canonical promote a standard way to deal with installing
and uninstalling programs in the Linux world? That WOULD be Good-bye
Windows, in my opinion. Thanks.
