Ubuntu is a community designed Linux distribution that is designed to be as user-friendly as possible

Ubuntu is quickly becoming the defacto standard in user-friendly distributions. Since it is Debian, apt will allow you to pull from a huge repository of Debian-ready applications and have them installed within minutes.

Ubuntu is also easily customizable, allowing you to completely change the look of the Gnome desktop in just a few clicks.

Ubuntu has become so wide-spread that variations of the operating system for KDE and Educational uses have emerged (Kubuntu and Edubuntu, respectively) based on the same components.



UbuntuLinux.org is the official home of Ubuntu, providing downloads, documentation, support and various community documents and forums. This is the center of all things Ubuntu and should be the first stop for those interested in the operating system.

UbuntuLinux.org also provides links to other Ubuntu sites, as well as allowing you to order free Ubuntu CDs. You can also visit the shop to buy Ubuntu branded hats, stickers, mugs and dog t-shirts (you?ll want man?s best friend advertising your favorite operating system too, right?).


Kubuntu

Kubuntu provides the same Ubuntu simplicity and community to KDE fans. Kubuntu is released at or around the same time as Ubuntu, so updates are released near-simultaneously with Ubuntu. Kubuntu also uses the same source and binary packages as Ubuntu, hence making the two interoperable.


Edubuntu

Edubuntu is also based on Ubuntu, but it contains a mix of Gnome and KDE tools and is designed for (as its name implies) an educational environment. Edubuntu is also released with Ubuntu, and uses the same Debian packages as Ubuntu and Kubuntu.


Edubuntu?s motto is Linux for Young Human Beings, and Edubuntu carries this thought though the entire operating system.

Edubuntu includes OpenOffice, the KDE Edutainment Suite, GCompris, Tux4Kids and the Schooltool calendar; all of this with a customized Gnome desktop.

القضاء: لا دليل على أن مقتحمي الكونغرس خططوا لقتل مشرعين

أكد محققو وزارة العدل الأمريكية أنهم لم يجدوا حتى الآن أي دليل على أن أنصار دونالد ترامب الذين هاجموا مبنى الكونغرس الأسبوع الماضي خططوا لاحتجاز مسؤولين منتخبين وقتلهم. يأتي ذلك في الوقت الذي أُوقفت فيه الشرطة، الجمعة، رجلا مسلّحا في واشنطن خلال محاولته عبور إحدى نقاط التفتيش في محيط مبنى الكونغرس حيث ستقام الأربعاء مراسم تنصيب جو بايدن. في ذات الوقت أفادت شبكة NBC الأمريكية، بأن مكتب التحقيقات الفيدرالي يحقق في إمكانية تمويل حكومات أو جماعات اقتحام مبنى الكونغرس. وقالت مصادر للشبكة: "المكتب يحقق في مدفوعات "بيتكوين" بقيمة 500 ألف دولار، يبدو أنه تم تحويلها من قبل مواطن فرنسي، لشخصيات ومجموعات رئيسية يمينية قبل اندلاع أعمال الشغب". وفي جلسة استماع في محكمة أريزونا بشأن اعتقال أحد مثيري الشغب جاكوب تشانسلي الذي يؤمن بنظرية المؤامرة ومن أتباع الحركة اليمينية المتطرفة "كيو-آنون"، تراجع المدعون الفيدراليون عن اتهامات سابقة بأن أنصار ترامب كانوا يخططون "لاحتجاز مسؤولين منتخبين وقتلهم" في هجوم السادس من كانون الثاني/ يناير في واشنطن. ع
Dear Microsoft : It's over. Our relationship just hasn't been working for a while, and now, this is it. I'm leaving you for another Operating system. I know this isn't a good time--you're down with yet another virus. I do hope you feel better soon--really, I do--but I, too, have to move on with my life. Fact is, in the entire time I've known you, you seem to always have a virus or an occasional worm. You should really see a doctor. That said, I just can't continue with this relationship any longer. I know you say you'll fix things, that next time it'll go better--but that's what you said the last time--and the time before that. Each time I believed you. Well, not any longer. You cheater! The truth is there's nothing more you can say to make things better. I know about your secret marriage to patent. You say you two are not seeing each other anymore, but I just don't believe it. You say you can live without patent, and I've heard that
