But, as many others, I had to rely on specific Microsoft Windows compatible software. But now, with emergence of webapps like Google Docs and the refinement of Ubuntu OS, it's alot easier to use Ubuntu exclusively. Unfortunately, I'm not yet on that point because I have some vocational tests software that are only compatible with Windows.
But now, with Ubuntu 11.04 and the Unity desktop, the user experience reached a new level. A positive one. In terms of functionality, design and hardware requirements, Ubuntu rocks when compared to Windows 7 or Apple's OSX Lion. Yes, I truly think that it is alot better than its competitors!
Some aspects of Ubuntu 11.04:
- it's very FAST and secure;
- it has an App Store with LOTS of applications ;
- it's reliable;
- it gets better with time;
- it's BEAUTIFUL (lovely fonts, backgrounds, and themes);
- has a new and awesome interface - Unity;
- it's free, zero euros or dollars.
What are you waiting for?
