The package manager and packages are very easy to use and are definitely user friendly (especially when using synaptic).
However, the part that is not user friendly is the fact that the OS installs with a very minimalist set of features, and requires you to install most of your own packages. Ubuntu comes default with many of the features that people already use, so only extra packages are really required.
