WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF UBUNTU USER:VISTA MICROSOFT OFFICE


Ubuntu is an open source operating system. With a Linux based system, there is no worry of gaining a virus, as well as all the security needed is built in from out of the box. With Microsoft Windows, you would need to worry about virus, hackers, etc. In a world where most of the security vulnerabilities are coming from third-party applications, Windows and Mac machines are at significant risk because they run lots of these apps and those apps aren't always updated automatically, which leaves the machines open to attacks. Again, to be clear, both Microsoft and Apple have comprehensive updating systems for their software - both the OS as well as company apps that run on top of the OS. The problem is with the software (programs, extensions, and plug-ins) from other vendors and the inconsistent methods they use for updating their code to protect against known flaws. With Ubuntu, there's one comprehensive software updating system. This is possible because Ubuntu has a centralized repository of applicationsand the only third-party applications that make it into the main repository are the ones that have been tested by Canonical (the company that produces Ubuntu) and are proven to work with the OS. This means that the Ubuntu main repository doesn't always have the very latest version of Firefox, for example, but you can be sure that the one it does have will typically install easy, work smoothly, and remain updated automatically. And, while iPhone and Android have a mix of free apps and paid apps, the apps in the Ubuntu Software Center are nearly all open source and free of charge. Like iPhone and Android, you have to sort through a fair amount of chaff in order to get to the wheat, but it's still a terrific 21st century computing experience. Both Windows and Mac need to learn from the app experience that is driving the mobile device market. Ubuntu has already beaten them to the punch.

If you add that to the fact that Ubuntu does a better job with software updates (a big security boost), then Ubuntu becomes a much more viable alternative for modern PC users, especially those who access most of their services and enterprise apps via a Web browser.

i want to download music software but it wont let me


What you need to do is set your software repositories. Go into Synaptic Package Manager and select Repositories from the Settings Menu. In the Ubuntu Software tab, select all of the checkboxes under the "Downloadable from the Internet" heading. For good measure, you might also want to select all the checkboxes under the Third-Party Software tab as well. This should allow you to download more than just the purely open-source/GNU software that is usually enabled by default.
