Ubuntu 9.04 Linux is a Linux based operating system which you can use on your home computer for everyday tasks like web browsing, gaming, and more. It is free, and easy to use, and comes bundled with a lot of free software. This tutorial will teach you how to install Ubuntu Linux 9.04 on your home computer from start to finish. You’ll need a blank CD-R disc which is 700MB in capacity, an internet connection, and a CD drive capable of burning CD-R to install Ubuntu 9.04 on your computer.
