Ubuntu Linux 5.10

Ubuntu is described as 'Linux for human beings' -- the name is an ancient African word, meaning 'humanity to others', and also 'I am what I am because of who we all are'. As you might expect from this, Ubuntu is big on sharing: it is, and will remain, free of charge (although support can be bought), and comes in regular six-monthly updates under the guidance of charismatic South African entrepreneur <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Shuttleworth">Mark Shuttleworth</a>, who also has the distinction of being the first African citizen in space.
