Ubuntu is a version of Linux with about two million installations now. It’s billed as “Linux for human beings” and is meant to be easy to install and use. It’s free, and there’s lots of software available for it.
I’ll be trying it out sometime in the next few weeks, possibly on a System 76 laptop, as it’s made for Ubuntu and comes with it pre-installed.
I’m tired of the endless security holes, fixes, and flaws in Windows. It’s time to explore alternatives. Macs are a definite choice, however an Ubuntu laptop is considerably less expensive and I like bashing away at the command line, something you do a lot in Linux. (Yes, Macs run on a variant of Linux, but probably most Macs users don’t get up close and personal with the command line.)
Will keep everyone posted on what happens.
