Simplicity of Linux with a touch of sophistication!

  • January 18, 2022
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
The best thing about Linux is that it's simple and easy to use. It takes very little of the system's potential for itself and performs like a charm. It doesn't come with bloatware.
What do you dislike?
The most quirky thing about Linux is that it doesn't support all the software that windows support, and even though Ubuntu Desktop does a fantastic job of a daily driver but the difference still is noticeable
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Since a lot of apps and software, and especially games, don't work on Ubuntu Desktop, the work experience is much less distracting and helps me to be more focused on the work.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Before switching to Ubuntu Desktop, make sure that all the essential programs that you use are available.

An excellent operating system for developers

  • January 14, 2022
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
The most important aspect regarding the Ubuntu operating system is the flexibility it gives us as developers and the ease with which it allows us to manage the packages required to create a development environment.
Another advantage related to this point is that Ubuntu is compatible with most development IDEs.
What do you dislike?
The only negative thing that I can find for Ubuntu is that sometimes there is incompatibility with other environments, for example if you are working in a hybrid environment with Windows machines, communication will not always be easy, to obtain this communication, sometimes you have to look for tools from third parties or install extra packages that sometimes increase the complexity a bit.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Ubuntu can solve any problem that arises for its user, it is a powerful system, light and comes with several applications already installed that make life easier for the user, especially in development environments.
One of the most important problems that Ubuntu solves is that being lightweight and open source significantly reduces costs, which is ideal for Start Ups.

A good Unix Ditro

  • January 10, 2022
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
The most important factor is that it is a free distro. The UI is very much user-friendly like Windows or Mac which makes the transition easy from a user's point of view. This has a good set of pre-installed packages and all the essential tools are shipped with the OS itself. Easy installation.
What do you dislike?
Support and helpdesk forums are very limited and not extensive and the mainstream OSs which makes troubleshooting specific issues difficult. Frequent updates and at times updates are unstable or long lead times to bug fixes. Not as extensive as a fully-fledged Linus OS as this is a Debian distro
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Basic shell scripting, code testing, connecting to linux servers , local dev env for linux based apps. Use it a secondary OS is dualboot. Using it for sandbox testing of some applications

Best OS to choose if you need 'Open Source'

  • January 10, 2022
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
The transparency and ease of use is the primary advantage of Ubuntu as compared to other paid operating systems. As Ubuntu is open source, there is a contribution from an extensive group of people and is less likely to have silly common bugs. The Ubuntu community is pretty large and active and has releases almost every six months with more and more advanced features. Ubuntu OS is generally very easy to update. Very intuitive graphical user interface. One other advantage is its free and opensource. As the contributing community is comparatively very large, the errors or bugs reported are easily addressed and shared as patches.
What do you dislike?
Though many people contribute to the Ubuntu community, there are several areas where attention is required. Especially on the UI front. Rarely, the unity crashes and can be annoying to users. Also, compared to several other popular operating systems available today, Ubuntu can be a little bit confusing and difficult to use for naive users. It could have been more user-friendly though the user-friendliness is improving day by day. Ubuntu doesn't have good support for new games. It's graphic quality is not that great. Ubuntu needs to be installed manually. One needs to have good knowledge of how to run installs and basic Linux commands to install Ubuntu. It doesn't come pre installed in existing PCs and laptops.There is no dedicated support team as compared to other paid services that comes with other operating systems. Beginners find it really diffcult to adept to many features and settings.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
The main advantage is on the cost side. As Ubuntu is free to use, there isn't any cost included with it. As a wider population uses the Ubuntu community, the support is also broad. A very much customizable user interface as a wide variety of user interfaces is available, whereas most other paid operating systems like Windows and MAC have only limited customization on the interface, Ubuntu is really developer friendly most of the dependent libraries are installed inbuilt and if not is really easy to install using the apt-get method.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
If you are a new user, give yourself some time to adapt to Ubuntu. Once you are used to it, you will start loving it. Ubuntu experince is relatively very rich compared to other operating system experience. Ubuntu desktop is highly recommended for server contexts.

The best OS for low configration system and for developers

  • January 10, 2022
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
The most thing of this OS is it takes very little memory like right now, I am using Ubuntu 20.04 LTS even before this I used 18 and It is taking only 1.9 GB for OS memory although window take approx 4-5 GB so If your system configuration low like you have only 4 GB Ram That time you can use this one more thing If you want your system work like mac that time It is the best choice and compares to other Linux system It's UI is best like you have ubuntu software you don't need to download each and everything from the terminal and one more thing when your os will hang like windows you don't need to restart you can kill the process from the terminal and most important part is it is free open source so for downloading of deploying any software you don't need to pay to anyone
What do you dislike?
The most disliked part in all previous versions is it wifi driver like many times it's disconnected from the hotspot, so you need to restart your system but that time I try to download again wifi repo to resolve this issue but that time which repos mentioned in ubuntu official docs did not exist so I go with another one, but none of then is working so, please provide proper support for that
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Previously In 2019, there was a lockdown imposed in work that time all persons doing work from home that time I had windows PC with 8 GB ram but that was very slow, so that time I installed ubuntu, and it was working very fast, and for downloading purposes here we have ubuntu software and you know i am working on ubuntu since a very long time to during deployment time I use ubuntu instead for Linux because In ubuntu server it is really easy for me to find errors
Recommendations to others considering the product:
If you were tried with hang is the system does not support issue also if you are using another Linux version, then please try ubuntu ones you will definitely liked this one
