Ubuntu is 5 years old today — let’s raise a glass and celebrate 5 ways it’s made Linux better.

5 years later, 5 ways that Ubuntu has made Linux more human

  1. The Ubuntu Code of Conduct;
  2. Short, time-based release cycles;
  3. Easy installation from a single CD image;
  4. Convenient access to useful proprietary components;
  5. Strong focus on improving desktop usability.
