on 14 February 2006

This article was last updated 9 years ago.

Ubuntu won Best Community, Distribution and Best Newcomer in this year’s ArsTechnica Linux Awards.

We are pleased to announce that Ubuntu has recently won three awards from

  • Best Community of the year

  • Distribution of the year

  • Best newcomer to the community

From the article: We didn’t have many surprises. Ubuntu Linux had a huge turnout owing to its raging popularity on the desktop. It is like Debian, but unlike the Debian Project, Canonical appears to actually get things done. The distribution is targeted squarely at the desktop without all the political red tape in which the Debian Project seems to have wrapped itself.
