Ubuntu

Last Update: 2019-07-17 21:20 UTC


Ubuntu is a complete desktop Linux operating system, freely available with both community and professional support. The Ubuntu community is built on the ideas enshrined in the Ubuntu Manifesto: that software should be available free of charge, that software tools should be usable by people in their local language and despite any disabilities, and that people should have the freedom to customise and alter their software in whatever way they see fit. "Ubuntu" is an ancient African word, meaning "humanity to others". The Ubuntu distribution brings the spirit of Ubuntu to the software world.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 5 (1,406), 6 months: 5 (1,476), 3 months: 6 (1,415), 4 weeks: 6 (1,255), 1 week: 6 (1,224)

Average visitor rating: 7.53/10 from 436 review(s).

Table Notes and Explanations

(Please refer to the table below.)
  • Select view: Major packages only (52) All tracked packages (226)
  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "plasma-desktop" package and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

I've been using Ubuntu since v12.04, and have seen a steady decline in that time. It is getting very bloated and slow, on multiple systems.

With the move towards snap, which I will not use, and the decision to eliminate 32bit support, it is time to move on to another distro that cares about the end-user.

It's been a fun ride, but it's now time for a change.

Just what a four-year-old IBM Thinkpad Carbon X1 required to revive it. Everything works without further configuration - including the fingerprint reader - and the "minimal installation" is a great idea which other distributions would do well to steal.

The GNOME desktop is refined - although it is very different from Windows, say, I find that relatively little mouse and keyboard is required to do things - and the new Suru theme is a great improvement over the old brownish theme with obvious gradients and shaded icons which looked dated. The fact that Ubuntu is used in a lot of commercial installations means that there is a continuous stream of security fixes and minor improvements, often three or four a day.

My only demerit is that snaps are being used for some of the less important components (e.g. calculator, task manager) when the technology is clearly not quite ready. Snapped applications take noticeably longer to start than conventional installations and, most obviously, do not inherit the installed theme - they always use a light theme. That inconsistency really needs to be fixed.

Ubuntu is Excellent for Linux users New and Old

Over the past couple weeks I tried, OpenSuse Tumbleweed (KDE), Debian Buster (KDE), Pop!_OS, and Kubuntu. They were all good as well, but presented unique challenges that I'd rather just avoid at this point in time. I used to love to work through all those challenges with proprietary drivers and such, but not so much anymore. After about 15 years of using Linux, I'm more interested in just setting up a stable OS and using great software to create content, get administrative work done, and play games in Steam.

The Ubuntu 19.04 minimal install took about 10 minutes from start to finish using USB 3.0 installation media. Proprietary drivers were installed without a hitch on this Hybrid Nvidia/Intel Optimus laptop. I've noticed that Gnome is much faster than it used to be. I find the whole experience to be simple, beautiful, and stable. It does seem to use a good deal of ram, but I have a laptop with 16 GBytes of ram. That's O.K. with me. I bought the ram to use it. I have the whole SSD LUKS encrypted and it still boots to my desktop in less than 15 seconds.

There are so many good distros to choose from theses day, but after trying a couple, I'm settling on Ubuntu because it is stable, fast, and user friendly. I hope that is helpful.

Happy Computing
