Ubuntu is easier to use and more powerful than Windows – that’s my opinion after using it for a few days.
Just a few of the features – Ubuntu comes installed with GIMP (a powerful graphics program), OpenOffice (a replacement for Microsoft Office), an Instant Message platform that works with AOL, Yahoo, MSN, a CD player/burner, and FireFox. Plus you can update all installed programs with just a couple of clicks.
Lots more too – and it’s open source and free.
Much more on my tech blog.
