Overall Satisfaction with Ubuntu Linux

As a software solution developer and provider firm, when we initially tried to switch our major workload to Linux, there were a lot of options available, but as per the need, we wanted a system which was lightweight, have wide software and hardware support and also a good user base. After a lot of research, we settled for Ubuntu, which I would say, was our best choice so far.

It's still very good, have support for many languages and also Web Development, right out of the box, which makes it so much better, plus it's also understandable and easy to work with for the user, who's using Linux for the first time. Till today, I'll recommend Ubuntu to someone without thinking twice.
  • Management of Resources
  • Security of the Systems
  • Stable and reliable system
  • Not so buggy
  • Works across all configurations.
  • More software support
  • Better hardware support
  • Better UI
  • Networking
  • Easy Remote Access
  • Better Software Support
  • Wide Hardware capability
  • It got of rid for frequent windows crashes
  • It helps us securing the environment
  • It comes handy in many jobs
It's better than macOS and Windows, while the Kali Linux was made for different purposes, so there can't be a head to head comparison between Kali and Ubuntu. As far as the macOS and Windows, the Ubuntu is better, first, it's a FOSS software, and second, it has better support for development.

Do you think Ubuntu delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Ubuntu's feature set?


Did Ubuntu live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Ubuntu go as expected?


Would you buy Ubuntu again?


Well, if you're looking for a development environment for Software Development, Android Development, Web Applications etc, you can go 100% with the Ubuntu Linux, but if you want to be a Graphic designer, Video Editor, animator, Game developer etc, I would say not to go fully with Ubuntu, that's not because Ubuntu is not great in these tasks, but the lack of support of some proprietary software on the Ubuntu Linux, which makes is harder for a newcomer to work on the Ubuntu Linux.
