Ubuntu is 5 years old today -- let's raise a glass and celebrate 5 ways it's made Linux better.

5 years later, 5 ways that Ubuntu has made Linux 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.

The innovation of the Live CD was critical in my own adoption of Linux. I wonder how many computer users out there are still unaware of how easy it is to test-drive an open-source OS?
