You can use Ubuntu Linux for both home and commercial use completely free of charge.
But there is even more to freedom than not paying for your software. Ubuntu Linux comes with complete source code. If you are unfamiliar with advanced computing, you should think of source code as a recipe.
Most probably right now you are using operating system that gives you no access to its source code. You have no way of knowing how exactly your system works, actually no one except producer knows how and what exactly your system does.
Open access to source code gives you possibility to know exactly how your software works, it gives you also possibility to modify any part of the system. Even if you are not a programmer, you should know that there are many of them that would improve your operating system for no additional cost if they only had that option - Open Source makes it possible. This is the main reason for such rapid development of Ubuntu Linux system and it's increasing popularity.

Nick, Web developer @ webdigity.com
I wanted to check Ubuntu and see if I can finally use something else besides windows in my pc. The funny thing is that now all my computers have Ubuntu, and even my girlfriend (who is not geek at all) uses Ubuntu and really like it.
I think that the linux desktop era is here, and everyone should try it because it simply rocks!
Bryan Basil, Student/Co-Owner of Radiated Computers
As a student, my operating system has to be stable enough to use on a daily basis, reliable, and customisable to the point where I can get my mind off of schoolwork for a while. After just over a year advocating Linux, contributing to Ubuntu, I decided to co-find an affordable computer store, spreading Ubuntu to thousands of people.
Thank you, Ubuntu. I am proud to be a part of this project.
It was poor morning in October 2007 when I first time put Ubuntu CD in my DVD-ROM. After a while I saw a nice-looking brown desktop. I liked it and decided to install. From that day it is my OS. Ubuntu is very nice, stable, fast, flexible and curious:) This system is great and I can do on it and with it almost everything. Two days ago I upgrade to new version - 8.04. And this is even more friendly user and easy to use. Almost everything makes automatically and works fine. This is really Linux for human beings. Great OS. I recommend it everybody.
