Overall Satisfaction with Ubuntu Linux

The Ubuntu Linux I use is actually its variant with KDE, Kubuntu. I use it in the company for any job, but mainly in geoprocessing and consulting on Web Apps. The main problem that Ubuntu [Linux] solves in my organization is financial - the fact that I can use an operating system of excellent quality, solidity and security without paying for it.
  • Ease of updating the system and the applications installed on it.
  • Variety of high quality applications available, mostly open source and free software.
  • Great security, which allows tranquility in the use of professional projects, even the most sensitive ones.
  • Thousands of sites on the Internet with tutorials, problem solving (even the most unusual and specific) and technical analysis that turn intensive use into a truly fluid and pleasurable experience.
  • More agreements with large companies and governments to publicize the system.
  • More hardware options (mainly notebooks and smartphones) with the system pre-installed at the factory.
  • Greater support for anti-software piracy laws.
  • Feature 1: Ubuntu Linux is free / open source software.
  • Feature 2: Ubuntu Linux is extremely secure and more difficult to hack.
  • Feature 3: Ubuntu Linux has thousands of free / open source software applications, with great quality and ease of use.
  • Resource 4: Ubuntu Linux has excellent technical support through tutorials, "cookbooks" and experienced users easily found on the web and completely free.
  • Positive impact 1: The great feeling of using quality software, free, completely updated and within the law.
  • Positive impact 2: The culture of using Ubuntu Linux encourages information security within the company.
  • Positive impact 3: The system has many more customization options, which can make its use more pleasant and personal even in the business environment.
  • Negative impact 1: A steeper and more challenging learning curve.
Windows 10: Expensive, with more security problems, more difficult to keep updated and less variety of free / open source applications. Its use encourages bad information security practices.
OpenSuse Linux: A different distribution at source (Suse Linux), use of rpm packages (with fewer repositories and incompatible with Ubuntu Linux dpkg packages), and whose main objective is to be a "testing ground" for its paid version / professional, SUSE enterprise Linux.
