Ubuntu Linux Review

Updates on packages are the main reason that I use this solution

What is most valuable?

The Ubuntu LTS server is very stable. I use Ubuntu on most of my servers and I'm very pleased.

How has it helped my organization?

Updates on packages are the main reason that I use the Ubuntu server. With this tool, my servers are up-to-date and secured. It is easy to use. The Ubuntu server is good for new admins. We use it for HAProxy load balancers, to database, and web servers with high availability.

What needs improvement?

I think it should only be for the desktop. Maybe it is good idea to say goodbye to Unity and say hello again to Gnome.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Ubuntu for five or six years. I use it mostly on web servers.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is very stable. For all those years, I never had any problems.

How is customer service and technical support?

I've never used technical support. I use askubuntu.com which is free and it is great!

Which solutions did we use previously?

I used SlackWare, then Debian. My most important servers are still using Debian, but the other ones are Ubuntu servers.

How was the initial setup?

The setup was straightforward. It is pretty easy to use for beginners to advanced admins.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Use Linux. It is free!

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not evaluate other options.

What other advice do I have?

Ubuntu is a very stable Linux. I highly recommend it.
