Jika kita mulai memakai MyOS Ubuntu atau Distro Linux lain, maka biasanya kita mulai membanding-bandingkan fasilitas dan kelebihan dengan O$ Window$.

Suatu kewajaran yang dialami hampir banyak orang ketika mau beralih ke MyOS Ubuntu atau Distro Linux lain. Kenapa disebut sebagai suatu “kewajaran”? Alasannya adalah karena kita pertama kali diperkenalkan dengan O$ Window$. Walaupun pada awalnya tidak bisa mengoperasikan ( jangan dulu bicara menginstall, hal yang seram bagi sebagain orang🙂 ) O$ Window$, tetapi karena kebutuhan (keinginan itu hal yang jarang muncul) maka selalu memaksakan untuk dapat mengopersikannya.

Hari demi hari dilewati untuk terus menerus memakainya dengan Sebuah Harapan ingin BISA, sehingga pada suatu hari menjadi ketergantungan dan mengandalkannya karena membantu menyelesaikan tugas atau pekerjaannya.

Jika kita mulai berkenalan dengan MyOS Ubuntu atau Distro Linux lain, akankah seperti diatas kejadiannya? Rasanya akan sangat mungkin!!! Tetapi waktu telah berubah, tidak bisa lagi mengembalikan kejadian ke perkenalan awal, yaitu mendahulukan berkenalan dengan MyOS Ubuntu, karena MyOS Ubuntu atau Linux baru mulai ramai pada tahun 1995, apalagi MyOS Ubuntu baru beberapa tahun ke belakang.

Daripada mempersoalkan hal-hal diatas, lebih baik mulai memakai MyOS Ubuntu atau Distro Linux lain dengan menyesuaikan kebutuhan untuk menyelesaikan tuntutan tugas atau pekerjaan. Jika demikian yang dipikirkannya, maka tidak perlu lagi membandingkan satu OS dengan OS lainnya, karena perkembangan teknologi dan kreatifitas manusia selalu berkembang ke arah yang lebih baik.

Untuk memenuhi kebutuhan aplikasi yang berjalan di MyOS Ubuntu atau Distro Linux lainnya, maka daftar berikut dapat dijadikan sebagai pertimbangan ketika memilih software aplikasi yang akan dipergunakan oleh kita…..
