Why spend money on licences, when Ubuntu offers a lightweight, secure and intuitive operating system for free? With Ubuntu, it’s business as usual. Its ease of use means users can get up and running immediately. It comes with a full office suite which supports Windows file formats. Or you can continue using Microsoft Office hosted on Windows or Citrix servers.

Ubuntu is more compatible than any other operating system. Simply plug in your MP3 player, camera or printer and you’ll be up and running. No CDs, and Ubuntu is compatible with Windows files too, so you can open, edit and share Microsoft Office documents stress-free.
