Ubuntu was first released in 2004. The project is sponored by Canonical Ltd., a U.K.-based company that generates revenue by selling support and services to complement Ubuntu. Canonical releases a new version of Ubuntu every six months and provides support in the form of patches and security releases for 18 months thereafter. Ubuntu consists of many software packages, which are licensed under GNU General Public License. This allows users to copy, change, develop and redistribute their own version of the program. Ubuntu comes with a wide range of software programs, including FireFox and LibreOffice. There is also proprietary software that can be run on Ubuntu.
Ubuntu is a complete desktop Linux operating system, freely available with both community and professional support. The Ubuntu community is built on the ideas enshrined in the Ubuntu Manifesto: that software should be available free of charge, that software tools should be usable by people in their local language and despite any disabilities, and that people should have the freedom to customize and alter their software according to their requirement.
The good side about using Ubuntu is apparently it will cost you nothing to use it, unlike Windows and Mac that you’ve actually need to pay up before you can enjoy every of its features. Here are some more of the list advantages:
1. Most applications inside software center are free, but some are not though very cheap in price.
2. Ubuntu is pretty fast and very secure to use. No need to plug an antivirus.
3. Ubuntu can also run some Windows application and Games through Wine.
4. Very customizable which you can do a lots of things such as changing themes, color, font, effects, and many more.
5. Base on my experience, it can format a volume that can’t be format by Windows itself. It can also delete a specific folder that contains malicious programs which cannot be done to Windows.
