Happy birthday, Ubuntu!


Today Ubuntu, easily the worlds most popular Linux Operating System (OS), turns 7! Within just a few short years, Ubuntu has released 15 different versions of it’s OS. It’s gained a huge following (over 20 million users and growing) by being ‘user friendly.’ That is, unlike the Linux OSes of the past, Ubuntu’s focus is on the end user - the every day people who use computers for accessing the Internet, chatting with their friends, editing pictures, working on presentations or documents, checking email, listening to music, and watching movies.

Recently, Wikipedia, Amazon, and HP (as well as a host of others) chose Ubuntu for all of it's server and cloud based solutions.

As a lot of you know, I’ve been a devout Ubuntu user for years (started testing Ubuntu in 2007). By far, it’s the best OS out there on standard PC hardware. In fact, I’ve found more integration with Ubuntu than I have had with any other OS, and I use Mac and Windows at work daily.

So, if you’re tired of shelling out all of your money for upgrades to OSes and hardware; if you’re tired of all the viruses and spyware; if you’re tied of stuff just not working; if you can’t believe that stuff still doesn’t seem to work together; then you owe it to yourself to give Ubuntu a try. I guarantee that you will be pleasantly surprised. And, after using it for a month or so, you’ll wonder why you ever used anything else!
