Publishers Description
See other freeware hotpicks
Ubuntu is a community developed operating system that is perfect for laptops, desktops and servers. Whether you use it at home, at school or at work Ubuntu contains all the applications you'll ever need, from word processing and email applications, to web server software and programming tools.

Ubuntu is and always will be free of charge. You do not pay any licensing fees. You can download, use and share Ubuntu with your friends, family, school or business for absolutely nothing.

We issue a new desktop and server release every six months. That means you'll always have the the latest and greatest applications that the open source world has to offer.

Ubuntu is designed with security in mind. You get free security updates for at least 18 months on the desktop and server. With the Long Term Support (LTS) version you get three years support on the desktop, and five years on the server. There is no extra fee for the LTS version, we make our very best work available to everyone on the same free terms. Upgrades to new versions of Ubuntu are and always will be free of charge.

Everything you need on one CD, which provides a complete working environment. Additional software is available online.

The graphical installer enables you to get up and running quickly and easily. A standard installation should take less than 25 minutes.

Once installed your system is immediately ready-to-use. On the desktop you have a full set of productivity, internet, drawing and graphics applications, and games.   On the server you get just what you need to get up and running and nothing you don't.

Scanned & Checked: Oct 21 2012 09:21 PM

When we last updated Ubuntu, we made sure it was still virus and malware free and the developer's site had no proven issues in any of the reputable site advisory services. In the unlikely event you notice any issues, please let us know immediately, otherwise we will schedule this software for another scan the next time it is updated.

Ubuntu is, without a doubt, the best Linux distribution out there. I will not go so far as to say it is the best operating system, because that depends on what you want to use it for. But for your average user, listening to music, editing some pictures, browsing the web and reading e-mail, Ubuntu is far superior to any other OS due to its ease of use and installation, lightweight, and pure style and class. I run it every day, am running it right now, and would encourage the average user tired of Microsoft's expensive, bloated operating system to run it.

Ubuntu, and Linux in general, is not good for any of the following user groups: heavy gamers, video editors, and business users, simply because the software isn't there. For any other users, I highly recommend it.
"Ubuntu,...is not good for ..heavy gamers, video editors, and business users..."

I'm running 11.10 right now on my 6 year old, 1 GB machine, right next to the Microsoft slaves in the office, and we share word and powerpoint files pretty well (I use LibreOffice). I use Remmina to control an XP server for those rare times I need a Windows program (like Visio). I edit video using OpenShot which is better than Windows Movie Maker, but because of the age of my machine I can't edit HD video (no DVD burner anyhow!).

At home I multiboot Ubuntu, LinuxMintDebian, LM12 Cinnamon, Puppy (very light), Bodhi (light and pretty eye candy), and tried a few more. Can't decide which I like better, or have different requirements on different machines. For a n00b, Mint 12 Cinnamon is probably the prettiest & easiest, and if you're coming from XP the easiest to get used to. I tried the Ubuntu Unity buttons and I'm not a fan, sorry.
