"Is ultra super fast, stable, and FREE"5.0 starson by joaquinravelo
Pros: - Free
- Immediately recognizes all hardware components and peripherals. No drivers needed.
- No viruses
- No "security holes" like windows
- Super fast
- Super ultra fast
Cons: Not all the applications and programs run on it. Limited support. Some super user knowledge recommended.
Summary: Ubuntu is just awesome. If all you need is a word processor, excel-like, powerpoint-like, read emails, and browse the web, Ubuntu is way better than windows. Is much faster, like 500% faster, not sure, it just flies. No virus, thus, no antivirus. Is free. Install Libreoffice or Openoffice, also free, install Thunderbird, also free, install Chrome, free too. After a week or two, you won't want to use WIndows again for home or students. At work is a different story.
In my mind, only MacOS compares to is (is actually a little better maybe). Keep in mind there are many things that won't work on linux, like apps and games and stuff, so keep that in mind. I am loving it.
