"Not perfect but best I've seen in a long time."

December 27, 2011  |  By blacksheepchris

 |  Version: Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot)

Pros

Fast. My sister called complaining about her Windows 7 computer being slow. I convinced her to give Ubuntu a shot and a week later she was asking me how to take Windows off completely. It's easy enough that even my mom who thinks computers are intentionally trying to make her life harder is using it happily. The reports is that her Farmville loads much faster than before. The software center is what I hope will be the norm for purchasing and downloading software. There are several very addictive and challenging games for free as well. I honestly can't believe after installing it on two of my own computers as well as computers from a host of family and friends I convinced, I haven't had one install issue. It even automatically detects little things like my laptops webcam.

Cons

To get it the way I like to have it set up it did take basic to moderate computer skills. I took the time to personally for others set up features that were not present after its initial installation. I would like to see a simple program built by Canonical to offer personalization features. If Ubuntu is able to do it ... there should be a way to easily change it. There were so many little things that I changed that I had to look on some internet forum to find a third party app or terminal code to figure out. Things my mom will never ever ever do. A lot of people I know wont. Also there are some games I have that were just meant for Windows ... it's not Ubuntu's fault. There are several Windows games I've tried that have worked with third party software.

Summary

I've been able to sell this product to other computer users in my life because of one word ... free. It's an amazing concept to them that this software that is making their computers faster is free. And that the software center has so many free options. For the average computer user Ubuntu can be used and they will never have any problem with it. They get on the internet maybe play a game or two ... write a resume with the included office-like software. Gamers however it's a good idea to keep a Windows partition on your hard drive. I switched from Windows to Ubuntu when both my Windows 7 laptop and desktop crashed separately within a week of one another. I feel like I have two new computers. They are both much faster on startup. People I show my laptop startup time to are always impressed. Once your desktop loads you're off and running. No need to wait for 25 programs and an anti-virus to load before even thinking about clicking anything. That said I have ran into little annoyances and some "I wish it wasn't like that" sort of moments, but far less than with other operating systems.

Honestly I meant to give it 4.5 stars ... like I said it's not perfect.

"It's not perfect but it works"

November 24, 2011  |  By rainspider21

 |  Version: Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot)

Pros

Very stable good graphics very good on memory

Cons

no support for Windows Media audio files, and possibly some video formats

Summary

Ubuntu is a great OS if you're a programmer, or just someone looking for an alternative to windows. The only gripe I have with it is it's anti-windows stance when it comes to it's files. For instance there is almost no support for wma files when it comes to playing them and burning them to CD. The files may work and they may not.

Depending on the player and if you have a whole lot of them ( like I do ) converting them can be a pain. The plugin to correct this problem ( windows media audio decoder ) is 29.95 (39.95 if you go for the pack to correct the problem with wma video decoding ) . And I think that it is a little unfair that you have to pay for something, that is obviously needed to correct a major hole in the software.

But, perhaps im just spoiled by windows after all their updates are free. All in all I like ubuntu, but I don't like how some developers have used it to make money by exploiting holes in the OS. I would recommend it as a secondary operating system, but I wouldn't make it my primary OS it would just be too much work.
