Why Ubuntu ?

Ubuntu is a community developed, Linux-based operating system that is perfect for laptops, desktops and servers. It contains all the applications you need - a web browser, presentation, document and spreadsheet software, instant messaging and much more.

Quick and easy updates

System requirements

Ubuntu is available for PC, 64-Bit PC and Intel-based Mac architectures. At least 256 MB of RAM is required to run the alternate install CD (384MB of RAM is required to use the live CD based installer). Install requires at least 4 GB of disk space.

Many Windows Software and games work with wine which is free and you can easily install.

There are many Graphical Enhancements as well. Try the windows+tab, windows+e, alt+tab, alt+shift+up keys and you will notice.

Very easy to install software just go System->Administration->Synaptic Package Manager enter your password and then in the text box type any thing you want to search and most probably be there click it press apply and it will be installed.

You can also install any software by typing commands in the terminal.

Suppose you want to install vlc through terminal just type the following command in the terminal:
sudo apt-get install vlc
press enter and you are done.
