Linux is a popular and completely free operating system for desktop computers. It’s an alternative to Mac or Windows, which can run right alongside them in a virtual machine.

Learn how to install Ubuntu on a virtual machine or directly on your computer and start performing common tasks: working with files, listening to music, editing photos, backing up your data, and sharing files with other users.
