What is Ubuntu?Edit
Ubuntu is a community developed, Linux-based operating system that is perfect for laptops, desktops and servers. It contains all the applications you need - a web browser, presentation, document and spreadsheet software, instant messaging and much more. It can be more aptly called as the Linux for Human Beings. It is created exclusively for the common desktop users, considering their ease of use to be most important criteria. For more, read here..
The Ubuntu PromiseEdit
Ubuntu is and always will be free of charge. You do not pay any licensing fees. You can download, use and share Ubuntu with your friends, family, school or business for absolutely nothing.
How Good is Ubuntu?Edit
Ubuntu issues a new and improved desktop (and server) every six months, which ensures that it's users are provided with the latest and greatest applications that are available in the open source world.
In addition, each Ubuntu release is supported for at least 18 months. If the release happens to be a LTS, then it comes with an additional bonanza of 3 years support on the desktops and five years on the servers, without any addition extra fee being charged and thereby making it available under the same free terms.
Ubuntu has been leading all GNU/Linux distributions for the past 2 years as per distrowatch.com and many other statistics. Our user base has been growing ever since our first release almost 4 years ago and we have been credited for bringing Desktop Linux into limelight and into thousands of home computers. Convince your network administrators to run an Ubuntu mirror and enjoy the benefits together with your colleagues and friends.
How Can I Get Ubuntu?Edit
Ubuntu can be freely downloaded from here.
If you are held up in a place where getting decent internet connection is still a distant dream, you can make use of Ubuntu's free shipping of CDs through Shipit.
If you are running your own local network, then running an up to date Ubuntu Mirror might be a good idea as a lot of people can install and upgrade very much like downloading from internet but from their local server, at the cost of maintaining a single mirror and bandwidth for the same.
