NYC Computer Help analysis: What’s the alternative to Windows & Mac?

Ubuntu is a version of Linux.  In case you don’t know what this is, it is an alternative operating system to Windows and Mac.  Ubuntu’s new 7.10 version, Gutsy Gibbon, will be released this Thursday.  Ubuntu is open source, meaning that it is free and open to the community offering fixes and updates that everyone can us.

Is Ubuntu for you?  Here are some advantages of using Ubuntu so you can decide for yourself:

– It’s free!

– You will receive the latest updates every 6 weeks

– Free security software for at least 18 months

– Built-in PDF creator

– Advanced support for multiple monitors

– It’s typically virus and spyware-free like macs

The only downside (or upside based on how you look at it) is any support is usually found by going on forums since there is no familiar Dell-support style help.  But, if you feel up to the task or just frustrated with Microsoft, Ubuntu’s Gutsy Gibbon might be for you!
