Ubuntu is a community developed operating system that is perfect for laptops, desktops and servers. Whether you use it at home, at school or at work Ubuntu contains all the applications you'll ever need, from word processing and email applications, to web server software and programming tools. Ubuntu has always been free to download, use and share. We believe in the power of open source software; Ubuntu could not exist without its worldwide community of voluntary developers.

Ubuntu is and always will be free of charge. You do not pay any licensing fees. You can download, use and share Ubuntu with your friends, family, school or business for absolutely nothing. Computing is for everyone regardless of nationality, gender or disability. Ubuntu is fully translated into over 50 languages and includes essential assistive technologies.

We issue a new desktop and server release every six months. That means you'll always have the latest and greatest applications that the open source world has to offer.

Ubuntu is designed with security in mind. You get free security updates for at least 18 months on the desktop and server. With the Long Term Support (LTS) version you get three years support on the desktop, and five years on the server. There is no extra fee for the LTS version, we make our very best work available to everyone on the same free terms. Upgrades to new versions of Ubuntu are and always will be free of charge.

Email and chat
Chat with friends and colleagues through Empathy which integrates: Yahoo, Gmail, MSN, Jabber, AOL, QQ and many more.
Evolution gives you email, an address book and a calendar and works well with colleagues and friends using MS Outlook.

Photos
Upload from your camera or phone to F-Spot. Manage, tag, share and sort your photos.
Upload easily to your favourite social network or photo-sharing sites inlcuding: Flickr, Facebook, Picassa and many others.

Office applications
Create professional documents, spreadsheets and presentations with OpenOffice.org
OpenOffice.org is compatible with all office applications including Microsoft Office.
The big difference is that OpenOffice.org is free (and promises never to introduce Mr Clippy)


OpenSSL 1.1.1 ????
OpenSSL, the secure communication library using TLS protocol, is upgraded to 1.1.1 long-term support series. It supports for the recently approved TLSv1.3 standard. Multiple client and server applications have been enabled to use TLSv1.3 by default in Ubuntu 18.10 with many more to come in the next release. The older 1.0.2 series OpenSSL is still available, however, it is expected to be removed from the next Ubuntu release.

The Ubuntu project is currently evaluating replacing OpenSSL 1.1.0 with backported OpenSSL 1.1.1 in Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. Bug 1797386 ????
