Here’s some of Dell’s Top Ten list for Ubuntu:

10) Ubuntu is simple and elegant
If you’re the kind of person who likes your computer to simply work, Ubuntu is right for you. It’s based on stable, secure, easy-to-use software that’s been around for a long time.

6) Ubuntu is secure
According to industry reports, Ubuntu is unaffected by the vast majority of viruses and spyware.

4) With Ubuntu, you have access to 1,000’s of free software programs

3) Ubuntu with OpenOffice is compatible with Microsoft® Office and Adobe® Acrobat®
Do you need to open Microsoft Office documents? What about Adobe Acrobat? Ubuntu comes with the award-winning OpenOffice software. With it, not only can you create word processing documents, spreadsheets, presentations, and even drawings, but it can also open and save documents in Microsoft Office format.

2) Ubuntu is based on Linux®
Linux has been around for nearly 20 years. The software itself is not only stable and reliable, but also pervasive. Linux is used on computers of all sizes ranging from the biggest to the smallest.

Beginning in 2007, Dell began shipping computers with Ubuntu.
