Recently, I tried out Ubuntu Linux on my computer. I heard a lot of good press about ubuntu Linux. To my amazement, it was every bit as good as advertised. Installing new programs and updates is a breeze, thanks to its synaptic updates program. It also comes with great free software like Firefox's web browser (much more secure than Internet Explorer) and OpenOffice.org's suite of free office programs (free and has similar features to Microsoft Office). Ubuntu also can run great free open source programs. I like to use Amarok on it (free mp3 player) and I also use free email programs like Evolution's email program. Ubuntu is also more secure than Windows and it is not vulnerable to computer viruses the way Windows systems are.
Users can download Ubuntu for free at http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download.
Or, if you prefer to get a free installation CD, just request that a free ubuntu Linux cd be sent to your house at https://shipit.ubuntu.com/
