1. An African phrase meaning "humanity towards others".

2. A distribution of Linux
1. "A person with ubuntu is open and available to others, affirming of others, does not feel threatened that others are able and good, for he or she has a proper self-assurance that comes from knowing that he or she belongs in a greater whole and is diminished when others are humiliated or diminished, when others are tortured or oppressed."

2. Ubuntu is a nice distro. I dual boot between Ubuntu and Windows.

The most well known linux distribution, comes with the GNOME environment and a complete set of tools for everyday use. It is also very easy to use, and to install. It has 2 main variants: Kubuntu and xubuntu in which each uses a different environment. Kubuntu uses KDE, and xubuntu uses xfce. It is also very easy to switch to if you were a windows user.
