Ubuntu is a Debian-based Linux operating system and distribution, with Unity as its default desktop environment for personal computers including smartphones in later versions. Ubuntu also runs network servers. It is based on free software and named after the Southern African philosophy of ubuntu (literally, “human-ness”), which often is translated as “humanity towards others” or “the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity”.
Ubuntu Desktop Features
Ubuntu Desktop comes with everything you need to run your organisation, school, home or enterprise. All the essential applications, like an office suite, browsers, email and media apps come pre-installed and thousands more games and applications are available in the Ubuntu software centre.
- Office software
Create professional documents, spreadsheets and presentations on Ubuntu with LibreOffice, the open source office suite that’s compatible with Microsoft Office. That means you can open and edit files like Word documents, Excel spreadsheets and PowerPoint presentations and share them with other users quickly and easily. You can also use Google docs directly from your desktop.
- Web browsing
Renowned for speed and security, Ubuntu and Firefox make browsing the web a pleasure again. Ubuntu also includes Chrome, Opera and other browsers that can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre.
- Smarter searching
Smart filters to make it faster and easier to find the content you need, whether it’s stored on your computer or on the web. Type any query into the Dash home and the Smart Scopes server will determine which categories of content are the most relevant to your search, returning only the best results. And it learns from your past searches making it increasingly accurate over time.
Ubuntu comes with Thunderbird, Mozilla’s popular email application, so you’ll have fast desktop access to your email. No matter which email services you use; Microsoft Exchange, Gmail, Hotmail, pop or imap, email just works.
- Compatible with all your accessories
Printers, wi-fi routers, keyboards, mice, speakers… you name it. If you need to plug it into your PC, Ubuntu will support it. The same goes for internal components like graphics cards.
- Organise your photos
With Shotwell, you can quickly and easily import, organise, edit and view your pictures. And you can share your favourite snaps on all popular photo sites and social networks.
Watch all your favourite content on Ubuntu with apps for playing, managing and sharing your videos. Edit your movies with PiTiVi and then watch them in Movie Player — or add VLC and OpenShot from the Ubuntu Software Centre, for compatibility with even more file formats.
Keep up to date with your friends and colleagues quickly and easily. Ubuntu comes with Thunderbird, Mozilla’s popular email application, so you’ll have fast desktop access to your email.
