We are using this solution for one of our projects where it requires an open-source toolchain for web application development.

We used this solution to do an integration between one of our PMS, property management systems. We integrated Opera and a cloud-based system. We use it as an interface between the Opera system, which is on a Windows server, and cloud bases system.

We use the solution in the company where I work as an operating system. Whenever you are doing some serious development, you deploy this solution on a Unix platform.

I provide products for my customers. There are no limits to this solution. Customers can use it for almost all applications and they can use it for their own systems.

It is used for everything. We use it for our mail server and cloud solution server. You can also use it as an Active Directory (AD) Server instead of a Windows Server.

I'm responsible for building and providing container environments, and, therefore, I need to install and configure Kubernetes clusters on Linux operating systems. We use Ubuntu as a base operating system for the Kubernetes cluster and container environments.

I'm using it for a file server and for MySQL servers. Those are my primary uses.

I primarily used Ubuntu Linux as a DNS server. I was running other types of servers, as well.

We are a solution provider and we recommend this product to our customers. We also use it internally. Ubuntu provides us with a computer server, allowing us to combine our software code and different projects to produce graphics. This operating system is suitable for cloud computing.

I use it for everything. I literally use it for any activity that I would do on a computer. I use it for writing code, browsing the web, shopping, and streaming videos and music. I also use it for graphics editing and testing.

I support a group that works with artificial intelligence. I install the machines for them and they do the customization. Some use Python, some use Java, some use other languages. They install their own IDs, their own products, their own systems and I deal with the operating system and support it. I'm a lead Linux administrator.

We run our personal applications or non-mission-critical applications on Ubuntu Linux to cut the cost.

I primarily use it in my day to day work to test my products. There are a lot of open-source tools on the market, and I need this product to have something to deploy them on.

We're using Ubuntu in a number of different ways and I even have a server for the main controller that's running Ubuntu so that people can authenticate and do various other things internally. I started using Linux a very long time ago and it wasn't Ubuntu. Ubuntu just happened to be the friendliest, nicest solution out there. It is also the easiest to sell to other people. One of the things I like about this solution is that you can leave it without having to boot into a rescue mode at one of your servers. You don't have to change permissions or go through nightmarish scenarios to solve technical issues.

Some of my customers use Red Hat, some of them use Debian, and some of them use Ubuntu. Ubuntu is popular for ordinary customers and some of our clients use Ubuntu. I have experience with most main distributions, such as SUSE, Ubuntu, Red Hat, CentOS, and Debian.

I used it before on my laptop, and I was quite happy with it. I had to change back to Windows 8 when we got a new product which is not supported by Linux. To show our product to our customers, I had to go back to Windows. I still have an older laptop which is using the Ubuntu version on it. I am still quite happy with it. I have not had so many compatibility problems between Ubuntu and Windows as I have had with Mac.
