What makes Ubuntu so user friendly?

What makes Ubuntu so user friendly?

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Of all the Linux distributions, the consensus is beginning to become clear that Ubuntu is, hands down, the most user friendly of the Linux distributions. Naturally there are people that claim other distributions like PCLinuxOS, and Linux Mint are even more user-friendly than Ubuntu. But what exactly makes a Linux distribution user-friendly? I have been using Linux for over ten years. My first induction in the “cult-o-Linux”...

Install and use Ubuntu One

Install and use Ubuntu One

Recently I previewed the up and coming release of Ubuntu, Karmic Koala (”Ubuntu Karmic Koala Preview“.) In that article I covered some of the new features in the upcoming release. Once of those features is the new Ubuntu One. Ubuntu One is much like the familar DropBox that people of nearly all platforms enjoy.

Backup Facebook Accounts

Backup Facebook Accounts

Many online services do not offer the means to backup data locally. Users who want to backup data are usually left with a tedious manual process (like downloading pictures or videos one by one). Data that cannot be downloaded right away is even harder to backup, think of contacts or private messages for example. Archive Facebook is an add-on for the Mozilla Firefox web browser. The purpose of the add-on is to provide the tools to backup facebook accounts. The add-on can backup photos,...

Real-time Local Twitter Trends

Real-time Local Twitter Trends

Twitter can be an excellent source for spotting the latest trends. Twitter itself displays several popular topics on its frontpage which are sorted by minute, day and week.

Trendsmap is a Google Maps and Twitter mashup that solves both of these...

Use this iptables script for Web/Mail server security

Security. Ah, security. It’s the make or break for administrators on so many levels. For the Linux operating system you could go in so many directions with your security. You could go the graphical front-end and make life easy but lose some flexibility. Or you could go the far more challenging route and use the command line iptables. I will say the GUI tools have come a long way, but in some instances the ease of use the offer gets in the way of being able to granularly configure...

How To Download Microsoft Security Essentials

How To Download Microsoft Security Essentials

Some of you might wonder why I’m writing about this topic again after publishing the two articles Microsoft Security Essentials Final Announced and Microsoft Security Essentials Final Available. The main reason for this third article originates from an article about SEO poisoning that was posted a few days ago at Websense. SEO poisoning describes a method of using SEO to rank rogue websites highly in the search engines for specific search terms. The release of Microsoft’s Security...

Distraction-free writing with PyRoom

Let’s face it, sometimes it’s just too hard to get work done with so many distractions coming at you on your computer.

For those times I need to get rid of all the distractions. With Linux there are a few ways to do this. I could go to console login and use a text-based...
