This operating system is not just meant for computer geeks! Ubuntu is easy to install, easy to use, and easy to enjoy! With this CD collection, it is a snap to install and they give you free customer support should you get confused. This allows you to have two operating systems on the same computer, so if you feel the need to keep your Windows or Mac software, you can. It will not slow down the existing operating system one bit. The software itself comes with tons of free programs and a Software Center to help you find more free and compatible programs. No anti-virus is needed because it is already safe and secure!

If your Windows OS on your computer is slow, I would definitely recommend adding Ubuntu to your computer. You can keep Windows for when you have those programs you absolutely must use on Windows, and then for fast internet browsing or whatever else, just select Ubuntu as you start up the computer. And don't be intimidated by the command line, to be honest, you will never really need to use it unless you are doing something super technical. The best part is, updates to this OS are always free so why not try it?

If you already know how to use your Windows or Mac, Ubuntu won't take hardly any effort to learn!

The CDs arrived within the time period and in excellent condition. Documentation provided was also very helpful. I knew next to nothing about Linux before purchasing these CDs. However, I recently acquired an HP Pavilion tx2500 tablet notebook, and I decided to switch from Vista 32-bit to Linux 64-bit just out of curiosity. I was expecting problems based upon numerous reviews regarding missing drivers and difficulties with wireless network connections particularly with this notebook. I was very very happy and amazed at how easily and smoothly the 64-bit installation went. All drivers I needed (even tablet) were available and working by the time I finished. And with the inclusion of how-to technical CDs, I'm now an Ubuntu believer.

I first tried using Linux about 10 years ago or so. Red Hat, Mandrake (and eventually Mandravia) were some of the more popular distros out there. Installing the OS by itself wasn't so bad. Dual booting took some work, and if you needed to install anything, you had to be comfortable with the Unix console. I had no real reason to use Linux, other than curiosity, back then (Windows never really gave me problems that I wasn't the cause of.) So I gave up.

Well, I have a reason to use Linux now: An inexpensive (by inexpensive, I mean pretty much free) option to Mathematica and Matlab. I had a laptop that's getting on in age, so I figured "why not?" and installed Ubuntu 11.10 upon the recommendation of several friends. The installation was a snap! Everything is pretty much automated now. You have to check a box or 2, connect to the internet (to update while it's installing,) and find your location on a map. The whole process took maybe 30 minutes. Linux is very friendly to those who need technical software.

Installing software has never been easier! I was able to install everything I needed, and then some, through their Software Center, which is basically like an App Store for Android. You search what you're looking for, and it'll either find it, or something close to what you need, provided it's available. So much of it is free too! Not once did I have to touch the console, go digging for source code or packages, or unpack a tarball. Before I knew it, I had all my music off loaded onto the hard drive and playing through Audacious (a decent open source music player,) Octave, Kile, and Maxima installed and running, as well as Google Chrome installed and synced. I'll say it again... Linux has never been easier!

If you're new to Linux like I am, then you want to purchase your Linux/Ubuntu distribution from DVDxDVD. I purchased the dvd/4 gig flash drive combo from DVDxDVD and received my order in 3 days.

The dvds run PERFECTLY on my Windows Vista laptop!

The flash drive was a Godsend because I can run Ubuntu 10.10 on Sony VAIO UX390N micro pc, which is smaller than a netbook!

I wanted a new Operating System because I'm tired of Windows crashing, viruses, and the expensive software and upgrades.

I also have an old PowerPC Mac laptop. Though viruses are not a problem on a Mac, the software, and accessories cost a fortune.

I feel Linux, in particular, the Ubuntu distribution, is the way to go.

And, again, if you need to purchase a Linux distribution-- DVDxDVD is the way to go.

My jagged path to Ubuntu....

I'm not a professional developer, nor am I that Linux savvy. Before this distribution, I've only had some minor linux experience trying to install off floppy disks, which the build couldn't read my modem so I trashed that Idea and went back to windows.

Flash forward a dozen years:

My heap of a desktop that was almost as old as my daughter took a dump on me. Since this was my only means of computing at the time, I formatted and reinstalled XP off the disk I had for years. I came to realize that it didn't have any of the drivers for my ethernet card and I couldn't get online. Rather than steal someone else's laptop to burn drivers, I figured I'd give Linux one more shot since it has gotten better over the years. I ordered this set with my phone since the price was fair.

Like the low rated review, I thought this was a 4 dvd install, but I am not that disappointed that it's not. What you really get is a 32 bit dvd, 64 bit dvd, a intro to linux dvd and a library dvd. Obviously I don't need both install disks, but I may use the 64 bit on my laptop we just got.

My Ubuntu review:
I'm currently running it on an old Dell with 512 mb RAM connected to a 47" Vizio internet TV for a monitor. (yeah, I do weird things like this. I wanted a PC to net around with and stream content on my TV)

The install went very smoothly and Ubuntu actually found everything on my computer with no issues. (Mint Linux couldn't find my sound card)

The programs I use for general stuff were already installed, or they could be found on the file network and installed easily enough, so everything made the transition easier to linux. I'm still getting used to the feel, but overall, it's not a bad alternative.
