Since its release, Ubuntu has become a veritable little bomb in the jungle of GNU / Linux distributions. Its qualities? A free and total freedom, particularly now easy installation with Wubi , and especially ergonomic access to a repository consistent.
Publicly available, Ubuntu is the choice of efficiency: users can easily find and install additional software from the application manager.
Designed not to confuse beginners, Ubuntu does not have the tools to configure Suse or Mandriva but remains simple and fun to use. The distribution includes an ample selection of software for surfing, communicating by mail or instant messaging, edit photos, or perform office tasks.
You can save your personal files and settings on a USB drive or removable disk and then take your system with you and access them from any PC.
All these qualities have attracted many users of Linux, but what about a "Windows user" who does not get rid of its operating system? Very simple, since the distribution, provided in the form of a "live CD" can run without installation from the CD / DVD or a bootable USB drive . If the experiment proves successful, a desktop icon allows you to install the system on the hard disk.
