Most of websites that you are visiting while browsing Internet are hosted on Linux and other Unix family systems. The main reason for that is its stability. Now, you can experience that stability on your desktop computer by downloading and installing Ubuntu Linux.
If you are tired of frequent hangs and crashes of your current operating system you should definitely try out Ubuntu.
Its open architecture guarantees that it is almost 100% bug free, and even if some bugs occur, they are being fixed in a matter of hours.

A friend of mine showed me Ubuntu at the beginning of the summer and I switched from XP almost immediately. I first learned how to properly set it up with a separate /home partition and FAT32 storage space to exchange files between my Ubuntu and Windows partitions. However, now I do everything except gaming on Ubuntu because not only is it more stable and reliable it is also more aesthetically appealing and highly customizable. I am always trying to get people to convert and spread the word about Ubuntu. As well as live disks.

After fitting a larger hard disk in my computer, I discovered that Windows would only allow two installs. After I fussed around getting a customer number from Microsoft, I installed Windows again and accepted the latest updates, which included some Microsoft malware called Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA). It told me my legitimate copy of XP was now counterfeit!
To avoid the annoying messages, I began to use Linux and when I couldn't get my sound and printer to run after one Linux upgrade, I tried a free copy of Ubuntu 9.04 that came with a computer magazine DVD. To my amazement absolutely everything was configured perfectly. I have still got Windows XP but I only use it for Dreamweaver and testing sites I have designed. It's just not safe to go on the Internet in IE and Windows any more and Firefox in Ubuntu runs smoother anyway. They only write viruses for the most popular browsers - Windows Internet Explorer - how sad - never mind I have Firefox and Ubuntu!

I'm only a day-old Ubuntu user, so I'm still on the learning curb. But I love it! I had tried other distributions of Linux in the past - Fedora, SUSE - but never before has Linux been so easy to use. I had no problems getting it installed and running, whereas, in the past, Debian and other distributions were much more trivial.
My only complaint as a Web developer would be with the default fonts. I know I can go in and change these, but I'd prefer that they resemble Mac OS's Lucida out of the box, instead of the gauche-looking default font family. I've heard thing complaint before from other Web developers and designers, so I don't think I'm along there. Hopefully they'll consider this for later releases.
Overall, Hardy Heron is an easy to install, easy to use OS, which I now prefer over my previous OS, Windows Vista. Ubuntu isn't perfect, though. I wouldn't recommend it to gamers or graphic designers. I say that because I'm not a fan of emulators, like Wine, and Gimp just isn't Photoshop. But, for me, seeing as I'm not a gamer and I only use Ubuntu for Web development, Ubuntu is the best thing the PC has going for it right now.
