You may be reading this article now via your computer, or your mobile phone, or your MacBook, or your New iPad…all of these devices are powered exactly by different operating systems.
Here are some examples of popular modern operating systems: Android for mobile devices like smartphones and tablets; iOS for Apple devices like iPhone 4S and the New iPad; Mac OS X for Macintosh computers; Microsoft Windows for almost computers you guys are using right now (and the rumor says the latest Windows 8 is coming soon in the fourth quarter this year).
Well, Ubuntu is just one of these operating systems too and it powers millions of desktops, netbooks and servers around the world, much faster than any other OSs and it’s absolutely free!
Ubuntu is free to download & install, and it’s faster, prettier, easier to use. You won’t feel there is a big difference between Ubuntu and others, and actually Ubuntu gives you more like free apps, free upgrades, free & bigger cloud storages and built-in security.
