I use ubuntu too, and I like it. It works pretty much the same way (APT
and .deb-packages) with the same software (synaptic, aptitude). Ubuntu
uses the GNOME desktop environment, but you can install other
environments as well.

I don't notice anything particular being totally different in use than
in Debian.

If you want to mess around without messing up your system, Ubuntu
provides a live CD.
