Last time I was comparing operating systems, namely RedHat vs. Windows. So what about free Unix? Is it still available and how useful is it? The answer is Ubuntu . Essentually Ubuntu is the latest and greatest free incantation of Unix and in short, it rocks.
It has a large, active user community and public developers, so it is vibrant and strong. Installing software on Ubuntu is easy via the aptget utility. To install the latest and greatest python use: “aptget install python pep8 pylint.” Nice and easy.
