If you are thinking about an os for your office computers than why not seriously think about linux ubuntu?
Ubunto? Never heard of it!
Don’t worry we will show you how to get it for free.
Notice what wikipedia says about this free open source operating system.
Ubuntu (// oo-BOON-too) is a Debian-based Linux operating system, with Unity as its default desktop environment (GNOME was the previous desktop environment). It is based on free software and named after the Southern African philosophy of ubuntu (literally, “human-ness”), which often is translated as “humanity towards others” or “the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity”.
According to some metrics, Ubuntu is the most popular desktop Linux distribution to date.
Development of Ubuntu is led by Canonical Ltd., a company owned by South African entrepreneur Mark Shuttleworth. Canonical generates revenue through the sale of technical support and other services related to Ubuntu. The Ubuntu project is publicly committed to the principles of open source development; people are encouraged to use free software, study how it works, improve upon it, and distribute it.”
What does this mean for you and I?
Simply this that you don’t have to p[ay for expensive microsoft bloated operating systems that crash over and over again.
Ubuntu is light, easy to use and VERY stable!
But what about all of my favorite windows programs and applications?
That is the best part!
Microsoft Office and other Microsoft Windows applications can be operated via the Wine compatibility package or by using a virtual machine such as VirtualBox or VMware Workstation.
This mans you get the best of both worlds!
This sounds so complicated!
No trust me.
Ubuntu is easy to use with a small learning curve. (Don’t forget you have to relearn microsoft every time a new edition of the OS comes out!)
This is another advantage…
While those microsoft os upgrades will cost you hundreds of dollars for each computer you have , (Just times that by the number of machines you have. YIKES!) Ubuntu on the other hand has FREE updates. 🙂
