Is there anything that Ubuntu does or any other Canonical software better than anyone else? For enterprise applications, I don’t really see an uptick in usage as Office is still the far better in productivity and efficiency, and a lot of server solutions using active directory which to me I still think isn’t quite there on Ubuntu. What is the high point of Ubuntu? And how is it compared to Microsoft Office?
IS Ubuntu the better or Office?
With a very minimum set of software, windows has word document, Excel, Access and presentation. These software are basic which a user needs on a daily basis. These software are not available with windows directly. A user has to purchase and install it manually. It comes in a package called “Microsoft Office”. High cost is the main factor of this package. Microsoft provides paid versions for every essential software. Software compatible and developed for Microsoft has to be purchased from Microsoft. On the other hand, Ubuntu has LibreOffice Suite (Very Equivalent to Microsoft Office). LibreOffice Suite is already present in Ubuntu. It also has other software such as F-spot, instant messaging client, Image editing, Chat provisioning for Face book, G-talk, Yahoo, and MSN. The biggest advantage of using Linux is its built-in driver set. Drivers for webcam, WiFi, Ethernet card, Printer or Scanner are already downloaded and installed. Whereas, in windows, we have to manually download and install a driver for each and everything.
