Ubuntu Linux (OS)

UBUNTU LINUX is one of a number of different flavors of the Linux operating system. The various different brands of Linux are generally known as Linux Distributions (usually shortened to Linux Distros by Linux experts). The origins of Linux can be traced back to the work of two people. At the heart of the Linux operating system is something called the KERNEL. This is the core set of functions necessary for the operating system to function. The kernel manages the system's resources and handles communication between the hardware and the applications.


LINUX KERNEL was developed by LINUS TORVALDS who needed an operating system but didn't want to have to buy one. When he had finished the first version of the kernel he released under an open source license that enabled anyone to download the source code and freely use and modify it without having to pay.

UBUNTU HISTORY

The word "UBUNTU" is an ancient Zulu and Xhosa word which means "humanity to others". Ubuntu also means "I am what I am because of who we all are". It was chosen because these sentiments precisely describe the spirit of the Ubuntu Linux distribution.

On 12 March 2009, Ubuntu announced developer support for 3rd party cloud management platforms, such as for those used at Amazon EC2.The latest release is Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin), released on 26 April 2012.

Mark Shuttleworth announced on 31 October 2011 that Ubuntu's support for smartphones, tablets, TVs and smart screens is scheduled to be added by Ubuntu On 9 January 2012, Canonical announced Ubuntu TV at the Consumer Electronics.


Top (6) Advantages of Linux OS (Features)


  1. VIRTUAL DESKTOPS ARE INSANELY COOL

  2. VIRTUAL DESKTOPS
    • Out of the box, Virtual Desktops are perhaps the most impressive 'wow' feature of Ubuntu. And not only do they look cool, but they're a tremendous boost for productivity. Its like having an array of dual, triple, or quad monitors (or as many monitors as you want) on a single screen. It exponentially increases the amount of program windows you can comfortably have open at a single time. And once you start using them - you won't ever want to go back to the single desktop paradigm of Mac or Windows.



  3. THE COMMUNITY SUPPORT IS AWESOME
    • While Ubuntu has come a long way at becoming as painless experience as possible, this is still Linux and there is going to be times you'll be scratching your head wondering why something didn't work. Luckily, the Ubuntu community is among the most helpful group around. If you've got a question, chances are that someone probably has already asked it on AskUbuntu.com. Or go get live support via IRC by joining the official Ubuntu support channel #ubuntu on Freenode.net. And if you just want to follow the latest happenings? The best blog for that kind of thing is hands down OMG Ubuntu.


  4. UNITY IS BETTER THAN EVER

    • The first public release of the new of Unity interface was met with some rather fierce reactions. Now, in 11.10 all the bugs have been worked out - and the new UI is better than ever. The Dash feature, which is like a Windows 7 start menu on steroids, is a super fast way to look up any application. And the sidebar of app shortcuts / window management is miles ahead of the Windows 7 (and is at least on par with the OS X dock).


  5. UBUNTU BEAUTIFUL THEMES
    • The Gnome Shell interface is an alternative to Unity. It seems to be more themeable, plus its' been around for longer - so there are a lot more themes available for it. There were previously some major compatibility issues with Unity, but that's all taken care of - and now you won't break the Unity desktop by installing Gnome. One of the huge benefits of the Gnome Shell is the wealth of beautiful themes available for it. These are the kind of themes that people stuck on Windows and Mac will envy you for.


  6. AN ENORMOUS FREE SOFTWARE LIBRARY

    • The Gnome Shell interface is an alternative to Unity. It seems to be more themeable, plus its' been around for longer - so there are a lot more themes available for it. There were previously some major compatibility issues with Unity, but that's all taken care of - and now you won't break the Unity desktop by installing Gnome. One of the huge benefits of the Gnome Shell is the wealth of beautiful themes available for it. These are the kind of themes that people stuck on Windows and Mac will envy you for.


  7. UBUNTU IS FREE & OPEN SOURCE
    • This one is obvious! But most important. As nerds, we are leading the way in the next era of computing. And as such, it is practically our duty to support free and open source projects such as Ubuntu. Particularly because it's an OS - the most important piece of software that runs on your computer. Trust me, I am all for proprietary software - programs like Photoshop or AutoCAD are well worth the money. But from a development standpoint, it's quite scary to build software that runs on a proprietary platform. Because the OS vendor can make radical changes at the drop of a hat that can adversely effect your entire business model. If Windows 8 is any indication these fears are justified.



System Requirements

The desktop version of Kubuntu currently supports the Intel x86 and the AMD64 architectures. Some releases support other architectures: SPARC,[36] PowerPC,[37][38] IA-64 (Itanium), and PlayStation 3 (however, a firmware update from Sony in April 2010 disabled OtherOS, making the PS3 unable to run other operating systems). Because Kubuntu is Ubuntu with a KDE desktop, any version available in Ubuntu is also available for Kubuntu.

The minimum system requirements for a desktop installation are a 300 MHz x86 processor, 512 MB of RAM, 5 GB of hard drive space,[39] and a video card which supports VGA at 640x480 resolution. The recommended system requirements for the desktop installation are a 1 GHz or better x86 processor, 1 GB of RAM, 15 GB of hard drive space,[40] and a video card which supports VGA at 1024 x 768 resolution, and optionally supporting visual effects.
