Look Out - Windows & MAC!
THE Linux distribution known as Ubuntu , might be the answer to your PC prayers. If you’re just plain SICK of the time-wasting hassles and expense associated with a Windows or MAC system, the latest version of this open-source operating system might be just what you're been looking for!..
Today’s Linux distributions (Unix based) offer a computer operating system (OS) that not only competes with Windows and Mac, but in many areas – exceeds what you can achieve in other OS environments. Did you know that Unix/Linux is the world’s most popular operating system in the server environment? This OS is so secure that it’s used for IBM’s supercomputer project at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.

To give you an idea of what is possible with Ubuntu 9.10
Ubuntu is composed of multiple software packages typically distributed under either a free software or an open source license. The main license used is the GNU General Public License (GNU GPL) which, along with the GNU Lesser General Public License (GNU LGPL), explicitly declare that users are free to run, copy, distribute, study, change, develop and improve the software. It is sponsored by the UK based company Canonical Ltd., owned by South African entrepreneur Mark Shuttleworth. By keeping the OS free and open source, Canonical is able to utilize the talents of community developers in Ubuntu's constituent components. Instead of selling the OS for profit, Canonical creates revenue by selling technical support and from creating several services tied to the open source OS.
Are you ready to stop wasting your precious time - endlessly running: anti-virus programs, anti-spyware programs, registry cleaners, disk defragment programs, privacy sweepers, security defense programs, firewalls, security analyzers, (paid) driver updates and having your system slow down with automated OS security updates, memory low warnings and “frozen” screen issues?
If you’re like us, about once a year or so, our Windows machines either get hit with an undetected virus or begin to run so irradically that we are forced to re-format the HD and re-install the OS (along with all the programs). What a regular hassle that is! Thanks to Linux, most of the common OS challenges mentioned here - are now a distant memory!..
