Linux Ubuntu
Category: Popular distributions
Ubuntu - a complete distribution of the GNU/Linux operating system, intended mainly for office and home (desktop) applications. A server and netbook version was also developed. Development of the latter was completed in 2011, as it was decided to merge the office and home computer releases with the netbook version, while adding a new graphical shell - Unity - to cover the popular GNOME.

Ubuntu is also popular on servers and in the cloud. Ubuntu is released at regular six-monthly intervals.

In addition to Ubuntu using GNOME's Unity desktop overlay, there are several variations of other distributions that differ in the desktop environment used and the basic package set. The most popular are Kubuntu (using KDE) and Xubuntu (using Xfce). They also exist: Lubuntu (using LXDE) and Fluxbuntu (Fluxbox). Xubuntu, Lubuntu, and Fluxbuntu are the hardware-lighter alternatives to Ubuntu and Kubuntu.

Ubuntu is a newcomer option. It owes its popularity primarily to its ease of use. This distribution is a complete operating system for office and home applications. A Windows-like distribution of options and functions makes it easier for new users to adapt to the system. The creator of Ubuntu - Canonical company - took care of automatic updates, thanks to which we have a guarantee that equipment with this system always uses the latest versions of applications. An additional advantage is a large and helpful community. The name of this distribution comes from the old African word for "humanity for all".
