Ubuntu is a complete, easy-to-use Linux-based operating system developed by a large community.
Ubuntu is developed with the idea 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.
These freedoms make Ubuntu fundamentally different from traditional proprietary software: not only are the tools you need available free of charge, you have the right to modify your software until it works the way you want it to.
The latest release includes a whole host of additional software, but the core desktop installation fits on a single DVD.
Ubuntu covers every standard desktop application from word processing and spreadsheet applications to web server software and programming tools.
