5 Reasons Why a Newbie should try Ubuntu

To quench my thirst of experiencing Linux, I started my journey way back in the year 2000 with RedHat 6. It was not a love at first sight and I had to reinstall Windows 2000 on my machine since I was too young to understand the concept of dual-boot! LiveCD was something I never knew in my dreams even!

What was one believed to be a geek’s operating system is now being used by school kids, doctors and grandpas too!

You can do it just by booting up your machine with a LiveCD. I’ve myself been an Ubuntu fanboy!

Having said so much is so little to help evangelize Ubuntu Linux. You need to give it a shot if you haven’t by now. Saying so doesn’t mean Ubuntu is the best Linux distro. But, it is definitely a Linux distro which created a wave-pool in the Linux ecosystem. and a must try for all noobs out there.
