Recommended Posts

Canonical announced the very first release of the Ubuntu Linux distribution on October 20, 2004. Five years later, Ubuntu is the star of the Linux desktop and has achieved a level of popularity and mindshare that is unprecedented among various flavors of the open source operating system.

This ascent to stardom and growing mainstream relevance were driven by a confluence of important technical and philosophical characteristics that differentiate the Ubuntu experience. In honor of Ubuntu's fifth anniversary, we are going to look at five ways that Ubuntu has made the Linux platform more human.

1. The Ubuntu Code of Conduct

2. Short, time-based release cycles

3. Easy installation from a single CD image

4. Convenient access to useful proprietary components

5. Strong focus on improving desktop usability
