What makes Ubuntu Great? The Community of course!
Ubuntu has a wonderful community and this is what makes Ubuntu so lively and exciting. The support for international languages gives Ubuntu a wider audience and a global reach. Free upgrades and free apps are things that just blend into Ubuntu. Ubuntu has something in store for every kind of user- whether you want to run a server, you are interested only in home usage over a PC or you own a netbook. Overall, it is a great solution for your PC operating system and software needs. But this is what makes Ubuntu the product so great. However, the Ubuntu community that works day and night to deliver this killer product is equally awesome!
