Basically, it’s a free and open-source Linux distribution that replaces your Windows operating system (and is 10 times better in my opinion). I’ve been using it full time since last summer and have not looked back.
Today, Dell announced the initial laptops and desktops that will be shipping with Ubuntu pre-installed instead of Windows.
This is a huge day for open source, for Linux and for Ubuntu. If you need a good, cheap and reliable computer that won’t get gummed up with viruses, spyware and adware but is easy to use, then this is your chance!
