Ubuntu Linux is a complete open source desktop operating system. The base
system and all included software is available for free. Support is
available from the community or by professional support providers. "Ubuntu"
is an ancient African word, meaning "humanity to others". Ubuntu also means
"I am what I am because of who we all are". The Ubuntu Linux distribution
brings the spirit of Ubuntu to the software world.
TheOpenCD and Ubuntu have teamed up to support each other's development and
distribution. The recently released LiveCD version of Ubuntu contains a
slimmed down version of TheOpenCD prepared by our team. With the LiveCD you
can run Ubuntu directly from your CD drive without installing anything on
your system. If you are ready to leave the frustrations and worries of
Windows behind, we recommend the Ubuntu LiveCD as the next step on your
journey to software freedom.
A brief tour
The standard user interface is based around the Gnome desktop
environment. When you start the system for the first time you are greeted
by a desktop that is unusually clean and tidy. No desktop icons by default!
Even the recycling bin has been moved down to the taskbar. The default
theme Human is designed to be easy on the eye. But Linux is inherently
flexible; you can customise the look and behaviour of the desktop in a
range of ways, from simply changing the default theme to selecting a
different desktop environment altogether, such as KDE.
The Applications menu gives you access to a selection of useful
programs, while the Computer menu contains system settings. Ubuntu includes
more than 1,000 supported pieces of software, starting with the Linux
kernel version 2.6 and Gnome 2.8, and covering every standard desktop
application from word processing and spreadsheet applications to internet
access applications, thumbweb server software, email software, programming
languages and tools and of course several games. If you should require more
software, simply use the Synaptic package management tool to download and
install programs from the freely available software repository. The
Universe repository features a further 10 000 applications from the
venerable Debian project.
The perfect OS, MS-DOS!
No patches, no root exploits for 21 years.
