    only one that it has no problems at all


    made on the architecture of Linux there are many others too but this one is great no virus free more stable than windows no need of drivers for hardware a update manager updates everything from OS to browser to mp3 players , the bugs are tried to be removed asap but if not able they are removed in the next release it also a release cycle of 6 months much faster than windows it saves you too much firstly you don't have to pay for it just like windows then no anti virus saved money here and it also comes pre loaded with Libre office which is as powerful as office it has Mozilla Firefox as standard browser and Thunderbird as default e-mail client means it is pre loaded with everything you need for home use or office ,business use it is highly customizable check out official facebook page and there is wide community support and you can buy support too that too for a low price if you can modify it modify it and publish it no one will sue you in short one just give it a try it will make your computer experince lot more happier even i learnt more about computer after i started using ubuntu i came in to contact with many ubuntu users from engineers to doctors to kids to studentsmust give it a try
