The popular Ubuntu operating system is moving from strength to strength, winning awards across the globe for the best Linux distribution. This time, it's the readers of the Linux Journal who have chosen Ubuntu as their favourite.

In the November edition of the Linux Journal, Ubuntu beat the more established distributions in this year's Reader's Choice awards.

In the Linux Journal review, Steve Hastings wrote that “Ubuntu Linux is an excellent choice for anyone who wants to run Linux on a desktop system. It's easy to install and to administer. Everyone from beginners to experts can use and appreciate it. And it's free “

Canonical Ltd is again extremely proud that within a year of launching Ubuntu, it is the favourite Linux for so many people. Combining stability with the latest versions of desktops and applications, Ubuntu continues to grow its user base by being the most flexible and most appealing Linux environment for both end users and servers.

The Linux Journal Readers' Choice award is the latest in a line of awards that Ubuntu has won recently, including the UK Linux & Open Source Awards 2005, Tux magazine Reader's Choice 2005 for Favourite Linux Distribution, and Ars Technica's best distribution award.
