Ubuntu

Last Update: 2022-10-02 21:20 UTC


Ubuntu is a complete desktop Linux operating system, freely available with both community and professional support. The Ubuntu community is built on the ideas enshrined in the Ubuntu Manifesto: that software should be available free of charge, that software tools should be usable by people in their local language and despite any disabilities, and that people should have the freedom to customise and alter their software in whatever way they see fit. "Ubuntu" is an ancient African word, meaning "humanity to others". The Ubuntu distribution brings the spirit of Ubuntu to the software world.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 6 (1,268), 6 months: 6 (1,216), 3 months: 6 (1,116), 4 weeks: 6 (1,165), 1 week: 5 (1,358)

Average visitor rating: 7.62/10 from 582 review(s).

Table Notes and Explanations

(Please refer to the table below.)
  • Select view:
  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "plasma-desktop" package and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

Ubuntu certainly is a top distribution that dosen't deserve all that bad press it gets.

They made snaps incredibly fast, to the point that firefox boots in 10 seconds on a 11-year-old laptop with a slow HDD drive.
They are driving a lot of the improvements in Gnome since they adopted it, including triple buffering, up-to-date extensions that most people use/need and accent colors (that are STILL not a thing on vanilla Gnome).

Snaps can be hit or miss and Flatpaks are better designed for desktop use (snaps are exceptional to server/terminal use), but having a distribution that updates frequently but has a frozen code base and that has little to no issues (go fix grub on arch or have a fedora update break something) is very valuable.

I have to say, 22.04 is a very problematic release with very bad bugs for the LTS on multiple desktop environments (software properties not working under KDE/LXQT, gnome-software not being able to remove packages for months, snap store failing for users that have it on other languages and likely more.)
Even then, Ubuntu already fixed the gui store related issues and made my laptop run gnome smoothly without ANY stutter on both Xorg and Wayland, highly recommended.

I must say that Ubuntu has improved a lot in the recent years, when I was a kid I dreamed of having Ubuntu and so far I haven't been disappointing as an adult

This release of Ubuntu is amazing, so far no problems after deciding to reinstall Ubuntu on my previous PC, everything is intuitive and smooth while still being less than half the system resources of Windows 10, my only problem only happens if you have the system in any other language aside from English (in my case Spanish) which is that the Ubuntu Software Store (or Snap store) just doesn't open and will never open for some reason unless you change the system language to English, but for me which I'm not that new I fixed it by just not using the Snap Store and instead just use GNOME software

People complain a lot about snaps and so far I haven't had any problems with them, only the first couple of times they take a while to start but after that everything is mostly at a normal speed at least on my PC, if you REALLY don't like snaps you should do a minimal install so the only Snap you have is Firefox, the only complain about this method is that you would have to install GNOME software manually thru terminal or synaptic and then install flatpaks, but honestly this sounds convoluted but it doesn't take that much time

Say whatever you want about Ubuntu, but in the overall world of Linux it is still the most popular distro and still a more polished experience compared to many distros I have tried, I will still recommend Ubuntu to anyone

My daily driver for years. Never had a big problem. Just works. Actually snaps are awesome.

I use it every day on my personal computer and it works great. As I said the snaps work correctly and fast, do not pay attention to people who criticize snap, it is endorsed by Canonical so it is obvious that sustainability is assured. Highly recommended for students, developers or home users. Of course, if you do not like that your distribution is supported by a large company I do not recommend Ubuntu (Canonical), Fedora (Red Hat), or OpenSuse (Suse). Just use an independent distribution and stop being bothered by the decisions of the companies that distribute the operating system.
