Ubuntu Linux Review

​Old equipment works for at least two or three years more

What is our primary use case?

  • Surprised with the better use of resources for old machines.
  • The GUI is easy and friendly.
  • The environment was a test machine with Intel i586 (recommended).

    How has it helped my organization?

    Improved on the recycling of old computers, but most users ask for a solution for new equipment. 

    What is most valuable?

    Use of the tools for systems and software to test functionalities. The integration with other applications, like Chrome or Firefox, works excellent for users navigating and test browsing.

    What needs improvement?

    Developing more applications for businesses could work better, but that is not part of the OS piece. Let the developers work on other apps, therefore the needs for consuming less memory do not affect the performance of this OS version.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    One to three years.

    What was our ROI?

    Old equipment works for at least two or three years more, which means a significant savings.
