      Description: Ubuntu Linux is a free operating system designed to be an alternative to Windows or Macintosh. Ubuntu is a derivative of Debian, one of the oldest Linux Operating Systems available. It has the most amount of packages available to use on the operating system.

      Ubuntu is the most user friendly version available to normal desktop, laptop, or netbook users. It features a lightweight system, requiring a minimum of 256 MB Ram for basic use, and 1 GB for more advanced use.

      It supports nearly all hardware.


      Ubuntu also features a special application called “Compiz”.

      Compiz allows you to make ubuntu more visually appealing. It allows you to also make it have the effects of a macintosh, like wobbly windows.

      If you are switching from a windows operating system, it is likely you may find it hard to make a full switch, because linux in itself can not run windows programs. If you absolutely need to run a windows program, you can install a program called “Wine”.

      Wine stands for “Wine is not an ...


      • emulator” but that is basically what it does. It allows you to run windows programs.

        You can also find alternatives to programs on osalt. com.

        My Opinion: In my opinion, Ubuntu is better than windows. Why you ask? When you install linux (ubuntu) onto your computer, you have no risk of viruses.

        Or minimum at most, because there are only around 50 viruses for linux, most are POF (Proof of concept) viruses, showing that it truly is possible to infect ubuntu. And since my computer is an older computer

        (around 10 years old) it runs very smooth on it.

        It it at least 4x as fast as windows was. Ubuntu uses an ext3 filesystem as of now, which is faster and safer than a NTFS filesystem, which is what windows operates on.

        I have ran ubuntu for just around 7 months now, and you always learn new stuff about it. Ubuntu is a very user friendly system, more so than windows, in my opinion.
