Ubuntu contains all the applications you'll ever need, from word processing and email applications, to web server software and programming tools also has graphic applications, Ubuntu contains only free software applications, downloads as an ISO image to be burnt to a CD, once burnt to Disk it can be run live or installed to a Hard Drive, Ubuntu has its own Boot Loader called Grub.
I have use Ubuntu and found it very pleasant and easy to use, probably the easiest Linux to use and i would recommend it to anyone interested in trying a Linux based Operating System. Ubuntu is an African word meaning 'Humanity to others', or 'I am what I am because of who we all are'.

This is one of the easiest Linux-based operating systems out, free to download and use, it can be run live from one CD and has the option to install if you choose this as your OS or as dual boot. Ubuntu has a web browser "Firefox" , Word processor, media player called Rhythmbox and much more, you can discover more and download in the link below "full instructions are provided"

Link > Ubuntu also Kubuntu, Edubuntu, Xubuntu, Gobuntu - related. Ubuntu is also available for PC, 64-Bit and Mac architectures. CDs require at least 256 MB of RAM. Install requires at least 4 GB of disk space.

Read more about Ubuntu / instructions on burning and download at > Ubuntu.Com Home Page

You can also install it under windows using a utility called Wubi that is inluded on the install CD. It will install to you machine and make it dual boot, but stores itself on the standard windows drive and can be completely removed using Add remove programs. Useful for trying it out.
