Overall Satisfaction with Ubuntu Linux

Ubuntu Linux is our promoted OS within our company for developers. Although there are some exceptions, most of our work collaboration tools, IDE-s, and extensions are used on Linux, and due to our client's environments we advice our employees to know at least some fundamental Linux basics to be able to provide support when needed. Linux is the most used OS therefore, and my choice of OS as a personal preference as well as professional work environment.
  • Lightweight OS
  • Wide support from the community
  • Excellent control over my platform
  • Best monolithic kernel for programming
  • Updates between LTS versions could be better
  • Newcomers might find learning curve a bit steep

  • Widely used in our sector
  • Not needing to licence a paid OS has greatly reduces our internal costs
