Ubuntu is free open source OS.But it is not a user friendly operating system. Also many options can be accessed by commands.Anyone who don’t like working with commands then it is not suitable for you.Also for security reasons we can trust Linux based operating system because the intensity of attack is very very minimum.Also it is free one ,so you get cheaper laptops when you buy with Linux based OS and you can easily format and use windows.
From the safety point of view Ubuntu is recommended for all users.But due to its non user friendly type it not advisable to use only Linux kernel based operating system,for that we recommend you to use it with dual OS (ex: with windows 8.1 or 10). Our rating is 4.0/5.
