Ubuntu Linux 6.06 LTS
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.
