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.

In an announcement to the community on 20 February 2009, Mark Shuttleworth explained that 9.10 would focus on improvements in cloud computing on the server using Eucalyptus, further improvements in boot speed as well as development on the Netbook Remix.
The initial announcement of version 9.10 indicated that this release might include a new theme, however the project has been moved forward to 10.04, and only minor revisions have been made to the default theme. Other graphical improvements include a new set of boot up and shutdown splash screens, a new login screen that transitions seamlessly into the desktop, and greatly improved performance on Intel graphics chipsets.
In June 2009 Canonical created the One Hundred Paper Cuts project, focusing developers to fix minor usability issues. A paper cut is defined as: "a trivially fixable usability bug that the average user would encounter on his/her first day of using a brand new installation of the latest version of Ubuntu Desktop Edition."
The desktop installation of Ubuntu 9.10 includes, among other programs, GIMP 2.6, GNOME 2.28, Mozilla Firefox 3.5, OpenOffice.org 3.1, Linux 2.6.31, X.Org 7.5 and Empathy Instant Messenger instead of Pidgin. The default filesystem is ext4, and the Ubuntu One client, which interfaces with Canonical's new online storage system, ...
