Ubuntu and Internet Marketing

Some internet marketers refrain from using Linux OS because many of them does not know how to use it to the max. But I think, every internet marketer should learn how to use it for several reasons.

First of all, for safety reasons. There are thousands and perhaps hundreds of thousands kind of viruses out there in the big vast world wide web. Many people like hackers are trying to invade Microsoft just to prove the point that their system is weak and will always have loopholes in security. But Linux on the other hand is different, most Linux programs are made by the people itself. Let us say Ubuntu. By the name itself, it says Linux for human beings. It is totally free software.

Most people who protect Ubuntu were driven by passion and love to people who cannot afford to buy security softwares for their computers. Unlike in windows, most of those people who are there to protect it were driven by money.

This is the uniqueness of Ubuntu and other Linux operating systems. This is why it is almost virus free, and if there is, it is very rare. We can see here that it is more safe to use Linux, in my case Ubuntu, compared to windows based operating systems.

Secondly, for economic reasons. The world today has been plagued by crisis. And I am pretty sure that if you are an internet marketer or even just an ordinary person, you will really avoid spending much money. Well guess what? Windows based operating system will cost you hundreds of dollars just for you to acquire all the things that you need for your computer, Operating System, Anti Virus, Adobe Photoshop, Microsoft Office, DreamWeaver, PDF maker, etc.

In Ubuntu, it is totally free. And all these programs have it's own equivalence even the anti virus (though most linux doesn't have anti virus because there is almost no virus in linux).

XP, VISTA vs. UBUNTU, Mandriva, OpenSuse, etc.

Adobe Photoshop vs. GIMP

MS Office vs. Open Office

DreamWeaver vs. Kompozer (formerly NVU)

Commercial PDF makers vs. Open Office direct PDF making

All these softwares are free. Though I really cannot tell which is best, but if one of your main categories is economical, Linux based programs will have the most points. But if you will count the “user friendly” aspect, then “maybe” windows based programs will still win. But then again it is all up to you to decide.

Finally, if you are really looking for some “real” colleagues, Ubuntu will really be one of the best. Ubuntu has the best forum on the net. I have been around the forum for a months now, and wow, there are really lots of people who loves to help you. No hidden secrets about Ubuntu. They will tell you how to troubleshoot your own computer.

So there you are. If you are a newbie in internet marketing and really want to get ahead start without spending a dime (granted that you already have your own pc), then you can try UBUNTU.
