Ubuntu is a Linux-based operating system designed to look, feel and function very much like a Windows system. The operating system can be installed directly alongside most versions of Windows. It also comes with an installation program that can repartition a drive and put a dual-boot menu in place. Ubuntu itself is incredibly easy to use since everything is done through menus and visual elements instead of command lines. The operating system adapts easily and automatically to nearly all types of computer hardware. A central software repository makes finding and installing new applications very simple. Ubuntu can deliver the power of Linux to any computer.
