Ubuntu Operating System

in Linux Server

An Introduction to the Ubuntu Operating System

The Ubuntu Operating System is a computer operating system based on the Debian Linux distribution. Ubuntu provides an up-to-date, stable operating system combining a strong focus on usability and ease-of-installation.

Ubuntu is (and has been since its development) be free of charge. There is no purchase or licensing fees. The open source software package is available for free download, use and re-distribution for personal, small and medium business or large enterprises.

Popular Variations of Ubuntu

  • Ubuntu Desktop
  • Ubuntu Server Edition
  • Kubuntu
  • Xubuntu

Why Ubuntu?

Ubuntu is an African word meaning ‘Humanity to others’, or ‘I am what I am because of who we all are’.  This makes perfect sense when you consider that Ubuntu is a community developed operating system and is distributed as free and open source software.

The Ubuntu Operating System is a great alternative to other Linux Operating Systems, especially if you are looking for an alternative to the Windows suits.

I now have UBUNTU 9.10, but I ran out of broadband space on Wildblue.net when I d/l it, so I would like to get a CD WITH UBUNTU AS A BACKUP.

i CAN’T GET BACK ON WILDBLUE.NET HIGH SPEED TIL DECEMBER O1, 2009.

Hi Vince,

That’s never good. I know how you feel though when you hit the limit half way through the month ;(

Check out https://shipit.ubuntu.com and see whether you can get a free copy of the image on CD – the only thing is that you may have to wait a few weeks for delivery and by that time you will most likely have high speed connection back again.
