Ubuntu Linux 6.06 LTS

Filed under
Ubuntu

You know a Linux distribution is becoming popular when it’s mentioned at the Fox News website, and there it was in a June 20 headline, ‘Ubuntu 6.06 Is Current Desktop-Linux Champ’. Of course, the story was courtesy eweek.com, but the fact that Fox cared is significant.

Long a cult favourite among the geeky crowd and web developers, Linux is starting to become more and more an attractive desktop OS for the average user. With version 6.06 LTS (Long Term Support), Ubuntu just keeps getting better with every release, (which is scheduled every six months, like clockwork). Where else can you get firm release dates and three years’ support for free?!

Ubuntu is available for 64 bit machines and Macs and PCs, so there’s no reason why everyone shouldn’t jump on the bandwagon.

Full Story.

Our Favourite Apps for Ubuntu

We enjoy using Ubuntu mainly for gaming, writing, listening to music and browsing the web. (Lots and lots of browsing the web.) There are other apps that we would love to have on Ubuntu like Affinity Photo, a stunning image editor that’s on par with Adobe’s Photoshop that’s available on Windows and Mac as well as Bear, a beautifully designed note taking app that we do most of our writing on that’s only available for macOS. However, the Ubuntu platform has moved forward in leaps and bounds in recent years when it comes to the official availability of popular apps and we are confident that this trend will continue.
