With Ubuntu, I think the recent versions have pretty much everything in place. Some other operating systems may not take all of the hardware devices and drivers, but here it picks up most of the things, so I don't see anything wrong in there. The user experience is good, the interface is good. It's all good. Being a desktop user, I can say that using this solution on a desktop is a very good choice. Ubuntu also supports a cloud-based installation, so it should be a good choice there as well. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

My advice to others would be to know what you really want. Ubuntu can be customized to exactly those functions. Depending on how you want to scale, for example, you might want to look at microservers, architecture, and how to connect it all up. And have your Ubuntu servers as small nodes or even containers. The solution offers many options, so if you're starting with Linux or Ubuntu, I would start with playing around in virtual machine space, seeing how the package management works, write some scripts, getting to know a little Bash. The solution is very secure and there is a lot of documentation available already. I rate this solution an eight out of ten.

I would rate this solution at 8 out of 10. For me, its different user interfaces is not a good idea because sometimes it's hard to find the best interface. It's better to have one, but an excellent one. I think the stability is very good.

We use Covernity for cloud infrastructure, but for disk management, I use Unbuntu. I would advise those thinking about using Ubuntu to be patient and don't switch to Windows. I would rate the solution as 7 out of 10, because some platforms aren't as easy for users.

I would advise using the solution because it's a very stable system and very fast and you are charged no money for using them. My number one choice, for the work I do, is Red Hat, but it's very expensive. Number two is Ubuntu, which works for small systems and has good value. I think that Ubuntu offers more than Microsoft. Microsoft is no good. There are lots of versions of Windows, but many errors and there's no stable system. I would rate this solution 2 out of 10.
