Ok well I think everyone should start using ubuntu instead of windows. I love that ubuntu comes with a bunch of programs, opensource, is free

Ubuntu comes with a bunch of free open source programs and can be installed by simply going to the install programs. The programs are mostly avalable for free download on windows operating systems as well.

Ubuntu is made on Redhat linux so the operating system is free and the code is avialble online. open source is grate because then someone has done the work them selfs else were and all you need to do to create you own it change it. Also open source is good because then people can code programs to make the program better called add on's and are free as well.

Ubuntu is free to download now on ubuntu.com, Free meaning lagitly free so no monthy fee free if you download off the interwebs. You can buy a DVD for about $12 - $15 for the cost of the dvd and the it comes in.

Easy to use yes it is once you learn it. just like learning hoe to use windows, and I can tell clicking on stuff, were folders are, and so on are the same but there are stuff you need to know like organisation because all programs are in a organised folder in the applications menu such as office, internet and sound & video and ect. But I am sure once you use it for a wile you will learn about it. Watch my totoral on ubuntu on youtube click here

Interesting.  I've been kind of in the market for a netbook, and the Dell one that I was looking at has the option for Ubuntu, which sounds tempting because it frees up some space on the machine, but I heard it was difficult to use.  Open source, though, is something that I'm a fan of, so I might look into it.  By the way, you can totally embed your video into your review ;)  Thanks for sharing,  Alan!
