"Linux-based operating system."
Ubuntu is the premier consumer-focused open-source Linux operating system. It has been designed from top to bottom to be easy for newbies to Linux to try out. You are able to run it straight from Windows by inserting a disk that you've added the downloadable ISO file image to or add it to a USB stick. Can boot from media and run from PC startup without the need to even install it. Once you are happy with the tryout, you can choose to install it as a dual boot or as sole operating system. Ubuntu keeps being improved with every year. This 12.04 LTS version is not the latest, but it has had more bugs resolved as a result. The LTS signifies long term support for this version, instead of it being one version that is being replaced by another a month later. So it's a good version to use if you want stability.
