Using Ubuntu Linux/General Use
Ubuntu can be used for everyday tasks such as web browsing, email reading and more! Using Ubuntu might be different but it doesn't mean it's not fun!
GUI[edit | edit source]
To use Ubuntu you have to be familiar with Unity: the GUI (Graphical User Interface) of Ubuntu. Unity looks a lot like Mac OS X and acts similar in many ways. The most notable difference is the Dash which is a new way of getting around your computer. Unity is pretty easy to figure out at a first glance and there isn't much of a learning curve required to master it.
Alternatives[edit | edit source]
Other GUIs are available as well. These include KDE and LXDE which offer a more windows like interface, and many other options aswell. To download these you may choose a fork of Ubuntu with these preinstalled. You may also install them with the package manager interface or terminal interface using $sudo apt get install interface.
