In just a year, Ubuntu has grown in to the most popular Linux distribution, and to prove it, the Readers of Linux Journal have voted Ubuntu as their "Favourite Distribution."
UK (PRWEB) October 19, 2005 -- The popular Ubuntu operating system is
moving from strength to strength, winning awards across the globe for
the best Linux distribution. This time, it's the readers of the Linux
Journal who have chosen Ubuntu as their favourite.
In the November edition of the Linux Journal, Ubuntu beat the more
established distributions in this year's Reader's Choice awards.
In the Linux Journal review, Steve Hastings wrote that “Ubuntu Linux is
an excellent choice for anyone who wants to run Linux on a desktop
system. It's easy to install and to administer. Everyone from beginners
to experts can use and appreciate it. And it's free “
Canonical Ltd is again extremely proud that within a year of launching
Ubuntu, it is the favourite Linux for so many people. Combining
stability with the latest versions of desktops and applications, Ubuntu
continues to grow its user base by being the most flexible and most
appealing Linux environment for both end users and servers.
The Linux Journal Readers' Choice award is the latest in a line of
awards that Ubuntu has won recently, including the UK Linux & Open
Source Awards 2005, Tux magazine Reader's Choice 2005 for Favourite
Linux Distribution, and Ars Technica's best distribution award.

highly regarded Linux distributions, with millions distributed and in
use around the world. Based on Debian, Ubuntu will always be free, and
will not have restrictive licences associated with it. With these goals
in mind at all times, Ubuntu aims at being the most widely used of all
Linux systems, and is the centre of a global open source software
ecosystem. Find out more about Ubuntu at www.ubuntu.com
