If you install Firefox, Opera, Google Earth, whatever you want... the procedure is the same, and is defined by your distribution.
In Windows, it's pure chaos. Depending on who's developing the software you'll end up running a self extracting zip file, some nullsoft installer, some binary you just don't have a clue of... or whatever you think is going to install the soft you want without doing stuff to your system you actually can't check... anyway, you see what I mean?
apt-get install <package name>
