Ubuntu Bridges the Open Source Gap

Stephen Yagielowicz

Adventuresome operators seeking a sleek open source OS that bridges the gaps between laptops and desktops, servers and the cloud, may find that The Ubuntu Project (www.ubuntu.com) offers just what they’re looking for.

Ubuntu is intended to provide fast, effective computing for everyone and was created by the open source community and Canonical as a free to use and share solution for both home and business applications.

Ubuntu is free. Always has been and always will be. From the operating system to security updates, storage to software.

“Ubuntu is free. Always has been and always will be. From the operating system to security updates, storage to software,” states the Project website.

The Project explains that all of its applications are free and open source, so they can be shared with anyone, because it believes that everybody should have access to the best possible technologies.

Ubuntu is backed by Canonical, an Ubuntu services provider that offers training, support and consultancy for a fee, which funds the continued development of Ubuntu.

The company notes that Ubuntu is more than a free and easy to use operating system; it also offers thousands of applications to choose from; including those for web browsing, social media and email, photo, music and video apps, Office compatible apps and more.

An active development community dedicated to building free systems and software keeps the project alive, with Ubuntu operating systems being updated every six months, with easy-to-install releases so users are always up to date.

“Ubuntu is made for sharing. Use it, modify it, improve it, share it,” the Project states. “Anywhere, any time and with any number of people all over the world. No license required.”

For savvy online marketers looking at the next generation of adult site technology, that opportunity raises some unique possibilities.
