Overall Satisfaction with Ubuntu Linux

The whole engineering team at my organization uses Ubuntu Linux. We use it for automated deployments of our applications. All our client apps are currently live on Ubuntu machines.
It addresses many problems that come with a windows machine. Ubuntu Linux comes with many inline software and thus saves time to install everything.
  • First and foremost Ubuntu is free. It's perfect for small startups like the company I work for where software cost is limited
  • It is completely customizable meaning each Ubuntu environment can have its own set of installs with any configuration that can be easily personalized
  • Ubuntu is developer friendly. We use Python and virtual environment, nothing needs to be installed. It has in-built support for most programming languages and any additional software update or install is also very simple.
  • Ubuntu is very secure and doesn't need any antivirus software
  • Ubuntu doesn't have good support for new games. It's graphic quality is not that great.
  • Ubuntu needs to be installed manually. One needs to have good knowledge of how to run installs and basic Linux commands to install Ubuntu. It doesn't come pre installed in existing PCs and laptops
  • There's no driver support and you can't play Mp3 audio files as it is on Ubuntu. You need to install additional software
  • Open source
  • Simple to use, developer friendly
  • Secure
  • Easily customizable
  • Reduced development and testing Time
  • Since it's open source, there's zero cost to use Ubuntu
  • Most of the packages are free to install
TeamViewer is really useful for remote deployments on Ubuntu in most of our projects
