Why Should You Use Ubuntu?
Ubuntu is the most popular Linux distro for desktop users. If you’re new to this, here’s what you need to know about the software…
*Ubuntu gives you better control over the systems
* The Ubiquity installer allows Ubuntu to be installed to the hard disk from within the Live CD environment, without the need for restarting the computer prior to installation
* As a security feature, the sudo tool is used to assign temporary privileges for performing administrative tasks, allowing the root account to remain locked, and preventing inexperienced users from inadvertently making catastrophic system changes or opening security holes
* Ubuntu can close its own network ports using its own firewalls software
* Ubuntu can also run many programs designed for Microsoft Windows (such as Microsoft Office), through Wine or using a Virtual Machine (such as VMware Workstation or VirtualBox).
* You can surf in safety with Ubuntu — confident that your files and data will stay protected. A built-in firewall and virus protection are available. And if a potential threat appears, it provides automatic updates which you can install in a single click.
