Ubuntu (64-bit) is a community developed, Linux-based operating system that is perfect for laptops, desktops and servers. It contains all the applications you need - a Web browser, presentation, document and spreadsheet software, instant messaging and other applications.
Does what it needs in the cloud. Has the gnome desktop which I like cause i dislike the unity interface that they put in for this version. It is also speedy and has no viruses Trojans or anything bad.
The only thing I dislike bout Ubuntu 11.0.4 is that it has the unity interface that Ubuntu is trying mandatory. I think Ubuntu should just stay with gnome like fedora. It makes things a lot more easier with gnome.
Great operating system to move from windows or mac. I don't think they are moving in the right direction tho with unity. Since unity is meant for the netbook and its needs. But overall great operating system to move to I just wish they would have a little bit more hardware acceleration to the os but that will come in later versions i guess.

In Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, gcc is now set to default to compile applications as position independent executables (PIE) as well as with immediate binding, to make more effective use of Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR). All packages in main have been rebuilt to take advantage of this, with a few exceptions.
