I think Ubuntu's main strength, as opposed to using the other Linuxes, has been its ability to encourage user feedback.

The feature that I most like in Ubuntu is that it is really easy to use. Ubuntu is very easy to use and comes with many available packages. I think that Ubuntu is a good solution for the small business or a small lab.

The most valuable features are stability and updates. We are not using the interface, the interface of the OS, we are using it as the server. We actually sync it through SSH and we deploy our application, so we don't have access to do it. The updates are very helpful and the way they update their OS is very helpful.

The feature that I have found the most valuable is that it is open source. It is also very easy to manage. We can manage it ourselves.

Ubuntu should create some specific features, like Red Hat. Red Hat has provided many features for open-source, like FreeIPA.

You need a lot of bandwidth during the initial setup in order to pull from the repository. Without good bandwidth, you'll get cut off and the implementation will fail.

Could be better support for graphic drivers and support from the hardware lenders.

I would recommend they improve the network security, because it can be very difficult. I mentioned that when you upgrade Ubuntu, the network cut is always deactivated, so you have to restart the service to reactivate the network. It is important to improve this ability.

It is an open-source tool, and it doesn't have any support. If there is an issue with the implementation of a feature, such as clustering, I am not sure how to resolve it and get support for it. The stability of the vendor packages also impacts the stability of this solution. When vendor packages are unstable, or any packages are broken, they also impact Ubuntu Linux. It is very hard to resolve an issue related to unstable vendor packages.

It could be easier for beginners and the user interface could be more user-friendly.

On the gaming side, things are happening but there are some games that should be ported to Ubuntu.
