Pros: Ease of use for beginners
Cons: bloaty for pros

Beginners install all the shiny desktop stuff and more experienced users leave it out. I've really gotten to like this distro over the years.

Pros: Great for a newbie
Cons: More work to get things accomplished

I first installed Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS two months ago. I inherited a donated HP Desktop with a bogus Windows 7 op-sys. A few weeks later I had a problem with my HP Laptop and I replaced W-7 on it also. I have been completely happy since. I can still access my old windows file backups and have had a wonderful time studying and practicing with 'Intro To Linux'(.pdf). I'm on a fixed income and this gives me a challenge learning the multitudinous line commands in a Terminal. As of this year, Microsoft is too expensive and too much of a headache for me to afford. The rewards are GREAT!!! with Ubuntu.
