Touring the Ubuntu Unity Desktop

Filed under
Ubuntu

Ubuntu 12.04 is an alternative to the Microsoft Windows and Apple OS X operating systems. It features a functional and intuitive desktop environment.

Ubuntu's Unity desktop has similarities to both Windows and OS X, meaning that users considering the switch to Ubuntu should not have much difficultly becoming familiar with this alternative operating system (OS), which is based on Linux, a popular open-source OS.

There are many reasons — I addressed five of them in "5 Reasons to Consider Ubuntu for Your Small Business" — that individuals and businesses may want to consider using Ubuntu over more expensive and closed options. A Linux-based system is certainly not the best choice for everyone, but for those that are making the move to a Linux environment, Ubuntu's Unity desktop may make that transition easier.
