Ubuntu is a Linux distribution for the desktop or the server that includes all of Debian as well as most of the packages of apt-get.org, with a fast and easy install, regular releases (every six months), a tight selection of excellent packages installed by default and a commitment to security updates with months of security and technical support for every release.
A major feature of Ubuntu 5.10 is the built-in thin client functionality - produced in cooperation with the Linux Terminal Server Project - making Ubuntu particularly advantageous in schools and for businesses with older hardware or who are looking to reduce total cost of ownership through effective Linux deployments. Ubuntu leads the world in the integration of thin client technology, making it the distribution of choice for large corporate desktop deployments where management costs and security are of critical importance.
GNOME 2.12 and KDE 3.4.3 provide the very latest user interfaces, and OpenOffice.org 2.0 enables support for the new OASIS Open Document Format, recently adopted as the standard by governments such as the State of Massachusetts.
