Ubuntu (pronounced oo-BOON-too) is an open source Linux distribution. And its operating system may be intended for personal computers but it can also be used on servers. So, here is why use Ubuntu Linux:
- Ubuntu Linux is Free
This offered for download free of charge and free for everyone to use and share.
- Ubuntu Linux is an Opensource
The source code of almost all software is available publicly. This means that anyone can take the software and improve on it as they see fit.
- Has a Great Support
There is a lot of free community support available and for professional support you can get it from Canonical. The company behind the Ubuntu Brand has its own consultancy services.
By default, Ubuntu does not set up a root user on your computer. The ‘do superuser’ command allows you to do administrator tasks by using the ‘sudo’ command.
- It is Secure
Linux is very secure by the inherent design of the system.
