The Advantages Of Ubuntu

Ubuntu

Bob Smiley left a fantastic comment on my blog a few days back. The comment was so rich, detailed and lengthy that it justifies a blog post all on its own. So, Bob Smiley summarises the advantages of Ubuntu.

The advantages of Linux (Ubuntu in particular) are:

a) It’s free of charge (seriously, you can download and install it for free!)

Cool You’re free to do with it as you please (no proprietary / closed source apps, unless you install them yourself.)

c) Ubuntu comes with a huge store-house of applications you can download and use via package managers that make installing things a breeze (if they’re pre-packaged)

rest here
