Ubuntu 12.04 LTS has landed today, offering enterprise users a secure and stable Linux operating system for their work environment. LTS stands for Long Term Support, with five years of guaranteed updates for the OS, as well as the option to purchase commercial support. The latest version of Ubuntu brings support for Microsoft’s Remote Protocol 7.1, plus desktop virtualization for Citrix and VMWare.
That gives enterprise users flexibility for office productivity. They can use desktop applications remotely, use browser-based solutions such as Google Docs, or use the pre-installed LibreOffice which is compatible with formats. Canonical believe Ubuntu makes a good choice for those faced with expensive Windows 7 upgrades.
