what is ubuntu ?
i only at glance exposed to several linux distros. a few years ago, I exposed to Mandrake and Red Hat by intentionally install it on my pc. later, I only hear about mandriva without curiosity to feel it on my desktop. now, suddenly everything on the campus named as ubuntu. generally, ubuntu is growing bigger.
like the others, ubuntu has its own distinctive identity. philosophically, the name is rooted from south africa philosophy of humanity toward others. on the development side, ubuntu releases its new version every 6 months. the distro has a strong commitment for education by releasing Edubuntu and Kubuntu that that intended to support education. but the real question is, what actually makes ubuntu specific ?
