Small Business - Ubuntu (10.10)
We are using Ubuntu (10.10). This version is easy to install and is quick to load when installed. We have had a few problems getting a few of the software packages to work properly (or at all) but the basic 'Office' and 'Internet' bundle works brilliantly - this operating system and it's free software is a must if you are running a business on a shoestring. Get the free download.
Ubuntu is a community developed, linux-based operating system that is free and perfect for laptops, desktops and servers. It contains loads of applications and is (in the latest form) a real alternative to Windows. It can run the Firefox web browser, it includes presentation, document and spreadsheet software, instant messaging and tons more.
Ubuntu is free of charge and has no licensing fees. You can download, use and share Ubuntu with your friends, family, school or business for absolutely nothing.
