Find out about Ubuntu, how this small Linux distro has taken the world by storm and why it’s currently so popular.
Ubuntu is a preferred desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting really popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is amazingly light and it can function on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you should have a safe and stable software environment on your hosting server all of the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities globally, so if you experience any issue or have any question, you will find numerous resources on the web. Among the main benefits of this OS is that it has a great number of software packages that can be freely customized in accordance with your needs as well as the requirements of the apps that you want to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their code is not accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.
