By far the difference of using Ubuntu Linux V.S. GNOME, KDE, and Red Hat for end users exceeds expectations.
Ubuntu includes an Update Manager similar to Windows platform which helps keep your operating system up to date with the latest patches and software upgrades, easy to install, secure - no viruses, cloud system included, user friendly, very fast, very stable, and I recommend it if you are new to the Linux environment.
