Linux Ubuntu ~ Fast, Secure & FREE Computing
20 million people are using Linux Ubuntu and we think you should to! Read more to find out why ….
In a nutshell, why should I be bothered about it?
For years, Linux has been FREE and whilst this is great and delivers choice, it’s not the key here. It’s more about security and seemless computing in day to day business. It’s about turning on a computer and waiting seconds for it to load and be usable, not minutes. It’s about doing away with all the third party commercial software to keep you safe and relying on the operating system to be robust enough to secure your activities online. It’s about a buoyant and enthusiastic community of people working together to make an operating system for the people and one which makes both windows and mac stand up and pay attention.
Linux has always been great, but has always had that sort of techy barrier that stops it appealing to the masses. Well, not anymore. Linux Ubuntu has just gone mainstream and wow, it really is something to talk about and it really is something you should be considering as an alternative to both windows and mac osx!
Take a look at what it offers with this on-line Tour of Ubuntu
You can surf in safety with Ubuntu – confident that your files and data will stay protected. A built-in firewall and virus protection come as standard. And if a potential threat appears, we provide automatic updates which you can install in a single click. You get added security with AppArmor, which protects your important applications so attackers can’t access your system. And thanks to Firefox and gnome-keyring, Ubuntu helps you keep your private information private. So whether it’s accessing your bank account or sharing sensitive data with friends or colleagues, you’ll have peace of mind when you need it the most.
Ubuntu loads quickly on any computer, but it’s super-fast on newer machines. With no unnecessary programs and trial software slowing things down, booting up and opening a browser takes seconds. Unlike other operating systems that leave you staring at the screen, waiting to get online. And Ubuntu won’t grow sluggish over time. It’s fast. And it stays fast.
Ubuntu works brilliantly with a range of devices. Simply plug in your MP3 player, camera or printer and you’ll be up and running straight away. No installation CDs. No fuss. And it’s compatible with Windows too! So you can open, edit and share Microsoft Office documents stress-free.
