Linux offers the pleasure of sharing: not only software, but knowledge. Using Linux, and especially Ubuntu, makes you a part of a large global community of people that enjoy using free software to fulfill their computing needs and also their entertainment ones. It's a phenomenon of the 21st century, revolving around the idea of connecting people from different cultural environments through an operating system that lets everybody contribute to it.

Ubuntu's fundamental concept is humanity to others or I am what I am because of who we all are (the translation into English of the word ubuntu from the Zulu language). The core of the Ubuntu philosophy is represented by the following ideals:

  • Every computer user should have the freedom to download, run, copy, distribute, study, share, change their software for any purpose, without paying licensing fees.
  • Every computer user should be able to use their software in the language of their choice.
  • Every computer user should be given every opportunity to use software even if they work under a disability.

This issue will take you step by step into Ubuntu's world, showing you in detail what must be done to have a successful install, how you can boot it along with Windows, how to configure software applications and hardware. Also, assuming that you are new to the free and open-source community represented by Linux, you will learn how Ubuntu's directory structure looks like so that you can find files that interest you very quickly and a glimpse of Linux commands to be able to work with the terminal.

The CD that came with this issue represents the LiveCD of Ubuntu 9.04 Linux distribution from Canonical. It offers you the opportunity to test Ubuntu just by booting it, without the need of modifying your hard disk contents. You can install Ubuntu on PC 32-bit, PC 64-bit and Intel-based Mac architectures. You need at least 256 MB of RAM to run the alternate install CD or at least 384 MB of RAM is you want to use the Live CD based installer.
