Ubuntu-News - Fri, 2014-02-14 19:02

At the Ubucon at Southern California Linux Expo on Friday, February 21st I’ll be doing a presentation on 5 ways to get involved with Ubuntu today.

The latest Linux distribution benchmarks to share at Phoronix are a comparison of Manjaro Linux 0.8.8, Ubuntu 13.10, Ubuntu 14.04 LTS in its current development state, openSUSE 13.1, and Fedora 20.

Ubuntu-News - Thu, 2014-02-13 19:00

Where is GNOME? Where is KDE? Fortunately Ubuntu has several officially sanctioned derivatives that provide other desktop environments or tweak Ubuntu for specific purposes.

For someone looking to begin a Linux journey, quite often, the first leg of it involves Ubuntu. Sure, there are many other distributions, but none can match it in popularity or ease of use. While my personal preference is Fedora, I concede that Ubuntu is probably more suitable for the majority of desktop users.
