Hail Ubuntu!

Ubuntu LinuxThe good folks at Ubuntu.com have sent me a bunch of CDs containing Ubuntu Linux distribution (“Distro” to them geeks!). Each set contains a CD for installation and another for running Linux “out of the box”. The CDs have come all the way from Switzerland, free. Yes, FREE – as in Free Lunch!

This is what the Ubuntans tell about their philosophy:

“Ubuntu” is an ancient African word, meaning “humanity to others”. Ubuntu also means “I am what I am because of who we all are”. The Ubuntu Linux distribution brings the spirit of Ubuntu to the software world.

The sublime element of the whole thing is the “non-caveat” that is printed on the CD’s wrapper:

You are legally entitled and encouraged to copy, share and redistribute this CD for yourself and your friends. Share the spirit of Ubuntu!

You too can get Ubuntu from here.

I will come back here to share my experience with Ubuntu after playing around with it a bit.
