Thumbs up UBUNTU, a free operating system that is better than windows

Hello everyone I just wanted to share regarding UBUNTU. It is a free operating system for your computer, that is based on linux. It is way easier to use than windows, more secure than windows, runs better than windows, and is completely free. Not to mention all the office programs, or any programs for linux are completely free as well. And there isnt all the malware and spyware b.s. either.

I just started using it about 2 months ago, and have not looked back. Everything is completely free too... the only problem is if a person is a gamer. There are hardly any popular linux games. But every other program is very comparable and free.

I strongly suggest that everyone here give it a shot... you wont be disappointed. Here is the link. http://www.ubuntu.com/

I actually found a few things amazing when I was installing Ubuntu aswell. Like drivers... it finds the best drivers for the operating system and installs them. Windows does the same, but the process was way less complicated. I dont know exactly how it works... I just know that it does. Normally when I install windows I have a few drivers I need to install before it works... that and windows installs alot of stuff I really do not need.

Smile Re: UBUNTU, a free operating system that is better than windows

I LOVE ubuntu and Linux as a whole!

I am currently using Ubuntu 8.10. I have been using 8.10 from it's alpha phase and it ran and installed with few and minor glitches.

Ubuntu 8.04 is perfect for most people's needs. If you have a computer with low system specs try Xubuntu.

**************WARNING**********************

Don't use Alpha software on a production machine, unless your prepared to spend a lot of time fixing it.

I'll third it.

Couple it up with stealth from www.metropipe.com (tell them I sent you) and you will be in business. You can also get metropipe on skype...

Great support too.

I've been tempted to switch for years then just forget about it lol.
Maybe now is the time.

I guess it's best to format 1rst?
Or can you install both o/s's on the same pc?

You don't need to format first, and yes you can dual boot.

I used ubuntu on my eee pc and it is wonderful. I wouldn't recommend it if you are into music or video production since most of the sound cards don't have drivers supporting this system yet. There is a project called alsa project were some people were working on it I got sick of waiting and scrapped my ideas to switch to ubuntu on my work computer.

For regular office work this OS is awesome. Very stable and virus free.
