Reach out and touch it
Ubuntu 14.04 LTS is the latest release of Ubuntu. Designed to work beautifully on the latest laptops, desktops and touch screen devices, it looks incredible on high resolution screens — and with touch screen enhancements and interface refinements including individual menu bars in each application window, it’s now even easier to use.
To use Ubuntu is to fall in love with it. The desktop environment is intuitive but powerful, so you can work quickly and accomplish all you can imagine. With full support for devices with touchscreens and trackpads as well as traditional keyboards and mice, you’ll be captivated by its elegance.
With the Firefox web browser, you can surf safely and with the confidence that your files and data will stay protected — thanks to the built-in firewall and virus protection. And if a potential vulnerability appears, we provide automatic updates which you can install in a single click.
Ubuntu loads quickly on any computer, but it’s super-fast on newer machines. With no unnecessary programs or trial software to slow things down, you can boot up and open a browser
Ubuntu works brilliantly with a range of devices. Simply plug in your MP3 player, camera or printer and you’ll be up and running straightaway. No installation CDs. No fuss. And Ubuntu is compatible with Windows files too, so you can open, edit and share Microsoft Office documents stress-free.
We believe that computing is for everyone regardless of nationality, gender or disability. Fully translated into over 40 languages, Ubuntu also includes essential assistive technologies, which are, of course, completely free.
Ubuntu comes with a set of pre-installed software, including a complete office productivity suite and more than 3,000 downloadable apps including Steam, the world’s most popular gaming platform.
Enjoy the simplicity of Ubuntu’s stylish, intuitive interface. Take Ubuntu for a test drive in your browser and download when you’re ready.
