Ubuntu is a computer operating system based on the Debian GNU/Linux distribution and distributed as free and open source software. It is named after the Southern African philosophy of Ubuntu ("humanity towards others") Ubuntu is designed primarily for use on personal computers, although a server edition also exists. Ubuntu holds an estimated global usage of more than 12 million desktop users, making it the most popular desktop Linux distribution[9] with about 50% of Linux desktop marketshare. It is fourth most popular on web servers, and its popularity is increasing rapidly. Ubuntu is sponsored by the UK-based company Canonical Ltd., owned by South African entrepreneur Mark Shuttleworth. Canonical generates revenue by selling technical support and services related to Ubuntu, while the operating system itself is entirely free of charge. The Ubuntu project is entirely committed to the principles of free software development; people are encouraged to use free software, improve it, and pass it on.

Features of Ubuntu

1---Splash screen When you boot up, you see the purple background and the word Ubuntu. Several people think this should be changed to something like OpenSUSE's colorful splash screen.
2----A new Default Browser Firefox is starting to lose it's luster and the people at Debian are taking a second look at Chrome. Chrome uses less resources than Firefox, is very fast, simple interface, and has a large database of plugins already. Like Firefox, you can customize the look of Chrome, but not to the extent of Firefox's customizable capabilities. Unlike Firefox, Chrome and Chromium (the true open source version of Chrome) comes in two flavors - 32-bit and 64-bit. This will make the browsing experience in Ubuntu even faster.
3----Speed...and lots of it. A new kernel ( version 2.6.35) should speed up boot times considerably and the overall speed of Maverick Meerkat. The video below demonstrates how fast the early alpha version really is.

Some Other Updates

Ubuntu 11.04 has Unity Desktop as the default desktop (although classic desktops are also available in login menu), instead of GNOME as you expected (because Ubuntu has been using gnome from the beginning). Some other features has been added – e.g Ubuntu Software Center has now ratings (in terms of stars) and reviews(in the form of comments) available for each application, Windows options has been shifted to panel (top),which appears on Mouse Hover…and so on. Ubuntu has now become the most popular Linux distribution among the desktop users. it’s open source, free, user friendly, fast and in short ..it’s a lot of Fun! Ubuntu 11.04 can be installed in many ways – You can install it from USB(Universal Serial Bus) or CD (or you can just boot your system from Live CD/Pendrive without affecting your existing operating system on your computer). In this post, I’ll cover both the methods – step by step with full explanation - installing Ubuntu from USB as well as from CD/DVD. This guide will help you in installing Ubuntu in parallel with other OS like Windows 7, if you want only Ubuntu, then it’s much easier, but not recommended if you play a lot of Games or you use some softwares that is windows dependent.
Installing Ubuntu 11.04 from USB Drive /cd

step #1

Download the ISO Image from it’s official website. Select the correct architecture and download the iso file.

step #2

Installing Ubuntu 11.04 from CD

Insert the CD or DVD and restart your computer. Then follow the steps as described above. If you have any problem during installation, then let us know, Reply through the comment box. Have Fun! with Ubuntu 11.04

step #3

Installing Ubuntu 11.04 from USB Drive

step 1 : Create a bootable USB  using  Universal USB Installer (a windows application that will create a bootable/live USB from the ISO file of Linux Distros, it supports a number of Linux Distros including Ubuntu 11.04 ).

First,  Download USB Installer and execute it, you will get a windows something like this (On Windows 7) -

Universal USB Installer
Select the Ubuntu 11.04 in Linux Distribution menu and locate the ISO File(You got it in step #1), although in most of the case it will automatically detect it. Now, select the USB Drive, which you want to make bootable, check the format option if you haven’t already formatted it. Then the click on Create button to begin the process..wait for few minutes until the installation process is complete.

step #2 : Now restart your computer and boot from USB (If there’s any problem then Change BIOS settings to enable USB booting or change the priority order..). Then select – install Ubuntu to your hard drive from boot menu or click on ‘install Ubuntu’ after live booting from USB. Now a lot of screenshots(That I’ve taken during the installation stage) will help you -

After selecting the language, click on Forward button. In next window, you will be asked to ensure that – your system satisfies its minimum requirements – like 4.4 GB Drive space, and it’s recommended to have Internet Connection (Preferably Wired,Wireless might works but I haven’t tested) during installation (so that it can download the necessary packages and updates)

drive-partition-ubuntu step #3 : Now this is the most critical step, where most people feel difficult in dealing with Ubuntu or any other Linux Distros.

If you haven’t installed any other version of Ubuntu then you will get only two option -

Option – 1 : Erase Everything and Reinstall – it will delete everything (all the data/files and other OS like Windows 7) and reinstall Ubuntu 11.04 on your hard drive. If you select this option then you can skip few steps, although it’s not recommended, better go for second option.

Option – 2 : Something Else / Advanced Partition – it’s not so difficult as it seems. No files will be deleted and if you are using Windows 7 and want to use both Windows and Ubuntu in parallel, then this is the correct option for you. When you choose this option 2nd,

drive-partition-ubuntu-1104

Now select the hard drive(if you have more than one), then the partition, where you want to install. After selecting the partition, first un-allocate/delete, then select that free space and click on Add. Then specify the details like -

  • Partition Type – ‘Primary’
  • File System – ‘Ext4'
  • Mount Point – ‘/’
  • Beginning

select-region-installing-ubuntu

Then, select the keyboard Layout, leave it default if you aren’t sure.

select-keyboard-layout-ubuntu

Then click on ‘Install Now’ button to proceed.

Your Geo-Graphical Location – Select your country from the Map

Then relax (or You may skip some language packs during the installation to reduce the installation time) until the installation is complete.

step #6 : That’s All. Did you expect more steps, sorry to disappoint you.. Restart the computer.
