WOW! This computer operating system which looks like a cross between Windows and Apple/Mac impressed me even more lately! It’s the third most popular operating system of the world. As an in home computer tutor and, thanks to God’s gifts, one of the best computer virus removal specialists on Oahu, I’m impressed with the easy to use interface and adaptability of this computer operating system. 
What I Like About Ubuntu - The Best Computer Operating System for Security and Ease of Use

 Faster for Older Computers 
When Microsoft announced they were no longer supporting Windows XP I began replacing it with Ubuntu for my in home computer clients. The Ubuntu computer operating system has what is called a smaller footprint. That means it uses less resources to run the operating system itself as compared to Window or Apple/Mac. Less resources to run the operating system means that more resources are free to run programs, applications and videos. More resources to run programs, applications and videos means less lag time and smoother running videos. 
Single Install or Dual Boot 
Dual boot means you can start your computer in its original operating system or Ubuntu 
This means if you love your computer based Microsoft products you don’t have to give them up. Don’t worry with today’s computers you’ll never run out of hard drive (storage) space unless you purchase a Chromebook which is primarily for online use. 
Built-in Free Programs 
No 90 day trial garbage that traps you into using the program or you can no longer edit your files. Ubuntu comes built in with: 
FireFox for Internet access 
Libreoffice a Microsoft Office replacement which can import and export Microsoft documents 
Software Center where you can search for additional software to meet additional needs you may have 
No Viruses Spyware or Malware 
Despite Apple's multi-million dollar advertising only a small percentage of the population owns Apple/Mac computers. The proprietary hardware and costly repairs keep it out of the hands of the average person. Being the third largest operating system means an even smaller population using Ubuntu. Thus Ubuntu is where Apple was five years ago. Not enough of the population using it to draw the attention of hackers. There is antivirus software you can add. Avast is making free antivirus software for Ubuntu, but I don’t use it and I am generally overly cautious due to my profession. 
 Thanks to OneDrive a Free Online Cloud Based Version of Microsoft Office is Available 
Microsoft's OneDrive cloud not only gives you 5 gigabytes of free storage, OneDrive also has free online Microsoft Office applications impressively similar to the computer based version of the office suite. Ubuntu users who love Microsoft Office can upload their files to the OneDrive cloud and work, edit and create new files from within the cloud. I personally find Google Drive more flexible just to voice an experienced opinion. 
 File Recovery of Password Locked Computers 
This is actually a service I offer using an Ubuntu flash drive or install/try disk. When a business calls me here on Oahu that had a disgruntled employee change the login password for the computer which must have files recovered before wiping the computer, I bring two tools. My Ubuntu flash drive and a flash drive to store the files before wiping the hard drive for the next employee. I have included directions on how to do this in my Ubuntu package even for Windows 8 computers and above which contain extra security. 
File Recovery of Crashed Computers 
Most hard drives (hardware which stores your files and photos) can still be accessed, but, not booted to start the computer as they begin to go bad. I once had a client call me who told me a private computer repair shop and a well known big box electronics store told him they could not recover the poor guy’s files. When I got the computer to my office and it wouldn’t boot to Windows I immediately went into virus removal mode and circumvented the operating system with an Ubuntu flash drive and copied the client’s files to another flash drive. He was very happy and has been my computer clients since. I have included directions on how to do this in my Ubuntu package even for Windows 8 computers and above which contain extra security. 
 And Here's More! 
I don't use these features myself so I didn't know how easily they could be initiated. 
If you're computer comes with an HDMI port it will work with Ubuntu and easily. My client plugged his HDTV into his computer through his HDMI port and I could immediately see his computer screen on the HDTV. The TV was on the left and it was showing the right side of his screen. I told him the adjustments were in Settings (which looked like a gear) and Display. He found them and was able to simply drag the right monitor to the left and change it! 
Two mouse clicks and my client found the pairing mode for his bluetooth speakers. Now let me make it clear, your computer must come with the hardware for bluetooth recognition. Ubuntu doesn’t just magically give your old XP computer bluetooth capabilities, but if you have a newer computer that comes with bluetooth, Ubuntu’s friendly user interface will help you pair your speakers or whatever bluetooth device you happen to be using. 
So Here’s What I (Rick Kirkham) Did! 
I want the world to enjoy the fast, secure and user friendly computer operating system Ubuntu, NOT just the computer clients for which I make housecalls here in Honolulu Hawaii (call or text Rick Kirkham at 224-1870 if you’re on Oahu). 
 SO I not only created a bunch of Ubuntu flash drives and even some CDs, using my computer teaching skills I typed out directions in very simple, end computer user, friendly, language. No Geek-Speak whatsoever! I’ll get you the Ubuntu flash drive or CD (you should go with flash drive otherwise known as USB Stick if you’re not sure) AND directions for only $49.00 click here now . 
As computer viruses become more aggressive and rampant, I am now recommending at least a dual boot setup for all Windows computer users. This way in the event of a virus locking you out of your computer, you can still use the Ubuntu operating system with greater ease and safety than Windows. If you use your computer A LOT for business or entertainment, THIS IS BECOMING A MUST!
