Ubuntu

Last Update: 2019-10-13 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 (1,415), 6 months: 5 (1,397), 3 months: 5 (1,362), 4 weeks: 5 (1,492), 1 week: 5 (1,523)

Average visitor rating: 7.53/10 from 461 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.

Been using Ubuntu since it first came out. I've tried Mandrake, BSD, Mint, SUSE, Slackware, Redhat and many others. While I would have stayed with BSD for security reasons Ubuntu just makes it too easy and I am getting to be an old geezer. My first Linux distro was Redhat on floppy disk ...no GUI ...so you know how old I am. I was a died hard command line admin. If you are new to Linux you couldn't pick a better distro to start with than Ubuntu. The only problem you will have is if you have an 'all in one' printer scanner copy fax etc. Get a separate printer and separate scanner and you will be good.

Cheers

I am another happy 16.04 user (16.04.6). Ubuntu's installation process is elegant, fast and easy. All is running out of the box. The system itself is as stable as a system could be, because it's a very mature LTS. I think this is a pretty underrated fact, because the trend of our time is to use rolling releases or at least the latest blingbling-development-releases. I think the security team is making a good job. Nevertheless I suggest to install the apparmor-profile-package, to run the ufw-firewall and to trust in a modern browser with sandbox technology. I am not using Snap at the moment but it is possible and I like the option.
I have downloaded the deb-file for my "all in one" printer/scanner from Epson's homepage and all is working just great for me as a power user.
Last but not least I am still in love with Unity. Good to know that it will run on 16.04 until 2021, on 18.04 until 2023 and perhaps also on the upcoming 20.04 LTS. Would be nice if some of the experts in the world's greatest Linux distro community would maintain Unity. Thank you Canonical, thank you Mr. Shuttleworth.

Slow and overall just feels bloaty. I'm hopeful with every new release this improves.
I tried it on 2 newer machines and was disappointed overall with performance.

No issues with install or hardware.
