Ubuntu Sabily : OS for Muslim!!!


Assalamualaikum,

For dis post, i wanna promote about computer stuff which is the Operating System (OS). Without OS, computer is unusable. Ok, maybe there is still some of you don't know what the heck is dis OS mean.....i give an example.

-Windows XP-
-Windows Vista-
-Windows 7-

That's what we called Operating System (OS). Most famous and common OS right now is 'Windows' build by Microsoft. That's why Bill Gates can became most richest people on earth! Another example of OS is :

-Mac OS X (Snow Leopard)-
-Linux-

So, in dis post, i want to talk about OS developed specially for Muslim; Ubuntu Sabily!
-Sabily use the Ubuntu operating system as a groundwork.
-Ubuntu is a GNU/Linux distribution whose goal is to provide an easy-to-use, up-to-date, stable and free system, also for companies.
-Ubuntu Sabily operating system has been customized to be adapted for Muslim

I'm still beginner at using this Linux distribution OS but you can ask someone who is 'pro' in this or maybe the group that created this superb OS.

You can visit the official Linux Sabily blog here
OR
visit Sabily homepage here
(maybe you can get a new knowledge about Linux)
