Installing Ubuntu is easy - especially if you do it from a memory stick.
Read our indepth guide to installing Ubuntu to decide which version of the open-source operating system to install - desktop or netbook, 32-bit or 64-bit - and then follow the instructions in our step-by-step guide below to do it directly from a USB stick.
... so easy to install and use ... I have to admit it's brilliant - and the software packager is a breeze for installing other apps too - especially VirtualBox which is a great way to enjoy Windows ;)
