You have the choice between simply elegant and astonishing look. All depends on Your choice.There's no limit what You can achieve, and the best part is that it's very simple.

Who is using Ubuntu?
Check out who and why is using Ubuntu Linux. Read the stories below.
Alex Abbott, Student
I started out with Ubuntu 2 years ago, when I was told it was an alternative to buying Windows Vista for all those fancy graphics. I quickly found out it was much, much more at a price you couldn't beat - free! The community was one of the best I had ever been in; open and willing to help even with the smallest of questions. It also allowed my computer to be more flexible in both how much resources it used and how it looked. Overall, I would recommend it to anyone who has hardware that works with it.

I have been using and fixing windows for over 20 years all to no avail -- it still crashes and locks up, I have been using Ubuntu linux for 2 years, and have taught it to myself to the point that I prefer it over anything else. It allows me to use multiple programs at the same time with little or no loss of speed, no crashes and no lockups. I have downloaded so many programs that I thought at first that I would have caused errors in the system, but nothing happened and my machine runs fast and true. I wouldn't change it if someone held a gun to my head, I get more done in way less time.
I've been a fairly long-time Linux-user. My first contact with it was back in 1994, and from 1998 to around 2000 I used nothing but Linux. In my case the Red Hat flavor.
After that it was back to Windows. Most of it laziness, some of it requirement for various things.
But in early 2007 I felt tired with that system. I was always annoyed, frustrated and irritated with the shortcomings of Windows. I never really felt much joy come from my computer, since it was heavily associated with all the annoyances of Windows - constantly having to fight the computer rather than use it. Always feeling trapped by a faceless corporations decision as to what I should be allowed to do with my machine. Constantly having to work around things which I felt was artificially introduced limitations.
So in an attempt to restore my sanity I decided to try Ubuntu. This was not my first time, I had tried earlier versions but never got hooked. The version I tried was Edgy Eft.
And for the first time in a lot of years my computer was fun again. Sure, there were some things which needed tweaking - but that's me. I push my computer to the limit and want things "my way". I got excellent help from the forums, and the Ubuntu wiki. I could also rely on my long-time experience with Debian servers to help me get used to running Linux on my desktop-machine as well. In fact, Debian is probably the reason I chose Ubuntu since I was already comfortable with that distribution on servers. Ubuntu felt like the natural choice on the desktop.
So, I played around with Edgy. And the more I played with it, the less I needed Windows. I felt like a junkie finally kicking his habit. I felt like I could breathe again.
Thanks to Ubuntu, I once again started enjoying my computing experience.
Since then I've been loyal to Ubuntu on my desktop. The server runs Debian, but my desktop gets upgraded every six months when a new version of Ubuntu comes out. I don't even have Windows installed any longer (deleted that partition more than a year ago) and I've even converted my girlfriend to Ubuntu. At first she was skeptical, but now she's a die-hard convert and gets nauseous whenever she has to use a Windows-machine.
