"Linux is great — if you know what you're doing.
If you don't, Linux, like any operating system, can be a pain.
Enter Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu Linux. On June 7th,
Canonical will start offering new Ubuntu Server and Ubuntu Desktop
"Ubuntu Advantage" business support services.
"Ubuntu Advantage will offer more than just technical support.
Canonical has long offered excellent business and individual
technical support. Ubuntu Advantage is different by including
systems management tools, access to online resources, training and
legal assurance. According to a company representative, "It is
built to help businesses who have deployed Ubuntu as a desktop
and/or server solution to become more successful in their adoption
of the platform. The new subscription package gives organizations a
single service to underwrite their investment in Ubuntu and is
split into different service levels to cater to the different uses
of Ubuntu in business.""
