Ubuntu is distinctly parallel with Debian although the two are closely linked entities. Debian is an organization patterning to produce free software for end users around the globe. It began in late 1993 by Ian Murdock who invited fellow developers to complete open source project he had worked on for quite a long time because it had not succeeded as his plans were.

With a firewall built in, advanced virus protection tools, this open sourced software is among the most secure operating systems in the world of computing. In addition to that, Ubuntu has provided long-term releases of adequate support and updated security patch updates.

How Ubuntu is better than Windows 10

  • Ubuntu is a commonly used operating system tool all over the world. However, windows operating system is in its own race. Most of the end users in the world of technology prefer windows because of vast fame the Microsoft corporations endeavored to build. Nonetheless, Ubuntu is a far better tool as compared to several windows versions.
  • The world today has so far praised windows stability and releases so much as compared to other operating systems, that is to say, windows xp, windows 1990, windows 7, windows 8, 8.1 and windows 10 which have greatly been debatable. To me, it’s exaggeration.  
  • Putting all our focus on windows 10, there are several features Ubuntu outsmarted the famous windows 10 operating system. It’s so practical and everyone living can see it. For instance,
  • While dealing with updates, these two OS will deal with such sensitive data of activities differently. Specifically, Ubuntu operates better than windows 10.
  • In this case, windows 10 handle updates for every application as a separate operation and at different times. A popup may appear asking you to update an application although you may have updated several of other software application. How many times shall you do the update exercises anyway?  Ubuntu updates every application as a whole and at a single time.
  • With matters concerning security, it’s undoubtedly true that Ubuntu beats windows 10 hands down. Take an example when you want to install a new program in Ubuntu, you must have a root password before any installation process; it’s not a matter of accessing the user account/root. On the other hand, windows 10 is possibly the opposite. For as long as you have accessed the user account, anything else is easy without password inputs, therefore less secure.
  • Given the fact that many people use windows, we are then free to assume that we are all aware of the famous product key. It really nags whenever we encounter such a scenario. For those who do not know what is a product key, it is a specific software-based key for a computer program, it contains a copy that certifies that the program is original. Once this certificate expires, you may not be able to use any windows application such as MS word, powerpoint unless you reactivate it or purchase a new one. This isn’t anywhere in Ubuntu, once you install Ubuntu, just sit and wait for a new version, Lol. It’s a matter of getting used to the system anyway.
  • There is another interesting aspect about Ubuntu; This is about all Linux distributions. Without installing the operating system on your hard disk, you can as well use Ubuntu by burning it on a flash disk or a live disk which isn’t the same with windows operating system, in this case, Windows 10. This is some way or another free you from the stress of backup and recovery of data if you are badly in need of using any other Os apart from the one you installed directly on the hard disk.
  • Moving to the purchase costs of both operating systems, Ubuntu is a totally free tool for everyone, while Windows 10 will cost you approximately $199.99, whereas you access the same applications as before. Ubuntu will provide a more advanced interface and application upgrades plus supporting you entirely through your Linux live freely and from time to time.  What must keep you tied to windows tools then? Ubuntu has proved it throughout the past decades.
  • In terms of download size, Ubuntu is less than 2GB and easy to download and burn to disk whereas windows 10 will need you more than 4GB of free space plus the costs of downloads for such bulky packages as it is. Low internet bandwidth may, however, cut you off from accessing such big bytes of data download. This may not look added advantage but in cases when space is limited, Ubuntu may save you a lot that Windows 10 may not.
  • Basing on the applications that run in the background on windows Os, they trigger background operations that really consume a lot of space and in a long run occupy several bits of memory spaces, therefore, slowing down your machine. All windows Os versions are prone to such malfunction, a vice that has not been experienced with Ubuntu and all Linux distributions all over the globe. I used windows 7 for several years before I switched to windows 8.1. I faced a problem of high running time even with smaller programs that do not take up a lot of space. At first, I thought the concern was with the version but later did I find out that it’s an issue for all windows operating system. It’s then when I changed to Linux, Ubuntu in particular and I have ever since enjoyed the low running time and first processing of this operating system.
