Ubuntu 10

  1. 1. BY Deepak Rathi
  2. 2. What is UBUNTU ? What does Ubuntu Means? Where did it all begin? … ….. Ubuntu is an ancient African  Linux was already established as an word meaning enterprise server platform in 2004. But free software was still not a part 'humanity to others'. of everyday life for most computer users. That's why Mark Shuttleworth gathered a small team of developers It also means from one of the most established Linux projects – Debian - and set out 'I am what I am because of to create an easy-to-use Linux who we all are'. desktop, Ubuntu.  The vision for Ubuntu is part social The Ubuntu operating system and part economic: free software, brings the spirit of Ubuntu to available free of charge to the world of computers. everybody on the same terms, and funded through a portfolio of services provided by Canonical.
  3. 3. 1. Speed Ubuntu 10.10 is fast -- darn fast. Even the beta version could boot in as little as 7 seconds, according to reports. Who has time to wait around for Windows when there's work to be done? 2. Price There's no contest on this one, because Ubuntu is free. Pure and simple. No investment whatsoever, unless you want to buy professional support later on. 3. No Commitment You can try out Ubuntu without changing or affecting anything else on your computer through options like a LiveCD, Live USB, Wubi or virtualization. In other words, you have nothing to lose.
  4. 4. 4. Hardware Compatibility Ubuntu will play well on just about any machine you might have sitting around, so you could also try it out on a spare one to keep it off your Windows machines altogether--until you decide you can't go back, that is. 5. Ubuntu One Ubuntu One is the personal cloud service that lets you synchronize your files and notes and then access them from anywhere. You can also consolidate your computer and mobile phone contacts and share documents and pictures with them. On the fun side, you can use Ubuntu One to buy music and get it delivered to the computers of your choice. 6. Windows Compatibility With Ubuntu 10.10, a beta client for Windows also allows users to integrate their Windows and Ubuntu worlds by accessing files from either platform. You'll never have to worry about being unable to get at your Windows files.
  5. 5. 7. Applications Unlike Windows, Ubuntu comes with key business productivity software for free, including OpenOffice.org. Firefox is included, but there's also support for both Flash and Google Chrome. Anything that's not there already, meanwhile, can be found in Ubuntu's Software Center. Whereas finding new software on Windows is very much a hunt-and-peck process, with lots of time spent on Google--and your credit card--the Software Center gives you a central place to find and download thousands of open source applications--for free--in a matter of seconds. 8. Security Ubuntu--and pretty much every distribution of Linux--is extremely secure, particularly compared with Mac OS X and Windows. No wonder experts have recommended using Linux for online banking, in particular--the others just aren't secure enough. 9. Multitouch If you try the Netbook Edition of Ubuntu on a supported netbook, you'll be able to see for yourself the brand-new multitouch features in Maverick's new Unity interface.
  6. 6. 10. Beauty One key emphasis in the new Ubuntu is making it more beautiful and aesthetically pleasing to use. The Unity interface is part of that in the Netbook Edition, and the Ubuntu Font Family is another part. It's all just nice to look at. 11. It's Sociable Ubuntu's new "Me Menu" lets you access your Facebook and Twitter accounts straight from the desktop. You can connect to all your favorite chat channels and make updates through a single window. 12. It's Linux There are so many reasons for businesses to use Linux today, it's hard to keep track of them all. Security is one, of course, but there are also many other reasons Ubuntu, in particular, has become such a good business choice--far better than Mac OS X or Windows.
