no everything isn't the same. Console commands etc depend on the distro, most of them do look similar though because they are using the same visual thingy (usually kde or gnome)
But just use linux and u will learn, u have ubuntu which uses debian commands, which is good because u find a lot of documentation & help for them. And learn to use the console for stuff, it's a lot faster and will make using linux easier. Google is pretty good for finding a command that u need.
And about the file system, instead of using drive names like C: or D: linux uses hda1 and stuff like that. In hda, hd = harddrive, a=1st harddrive (master), 1=the number of the partition on the hdd. So if u have like 2 hdds and two partitions on each of the hdds, the 2nd partition of the 2nd hdd would be called hdb2 instead of F: or what ever letter windows would give it.
If u need to know something specific just ask, I'm not a pro with linux (just started to use it a while ago) but I do know something, and there are probably quite many here who know a lot more than I do.
