Meaning of an Ubuntu Linux Disro

Free and open source software

Ubuntu is a community driven project to create an operating system and a collection of applications using free and open source software. At the heart of the Ubuntu Philosophy of Software Freedom are the following ideals:

1. Every computer user should have the freedom to run, copy, distribute, study, share, modify and improve their software for any purpose, without having to pay a license fee.
2. Every computer user must be able to use the software in a language they are fluent in.
3. Every computer user should get equal opportunities to use the software, even if they have physical limitations.

This philosophy of ours is reflected in the software we create and include in the Ubuntu distribution. To that end, the license agreement of the software we distribute must be governed according to our philosophy, using the Ubuntu License Policy

For Ubuntu, the word “free” in “free software” is used as a reference to freedom and not freedom in terms of price – although we are committed not to overcharge Ubuntu. The most important thing about Ubuntu is not that it is freely available, but that it offers software freedom to those of you who install and use Ubuntu. It is this aspect of freedom that allows the Ubuntu community to grow, so that they can share experiences and expertise to make Ubuntu better and make Ubuntu suitable for use in various countries and industries.


quote the Free Software Foundation’s “What is Free Software”, the essence of software freedom can be defined as follows:

* Freedom to run the program for any purpose.
* Freedom to learn how the program works and can be adapted to your needs.
* Freedom to redistribute copies of the software so you can help others.
* Freedom to improve program performance, and to be able to disseminate it to the general public so that all enjoy the benefits.


source is a term that was introduced in 1998 to remove the ambiguity of the meaning of the word “free” in English. The Open Source Initiative describes the definition of open source software in the Open Source Definition. Today Open source has enjoyed successful growth and has been widely recognized.


itself can be referred to as an open source operating system. While there are those who argue that free and open source software are competing movements and have different ends, we ourselves do not see or regard free and open source software as distinct or incompatible with each other. The Ubuntu community proudly invites various parties, both from the free software community and the open source community as well as other parties to participate in developing Ubuntu.
