Ubuntu is a free, open source operating system that starts with the breadth of Debian and adds regular releases (every six months), a clear focus on the user and usability (it should "Just Work", TM) and a commitment to security updates with 18 months of support for every release. Ubuntu ships with the latest Gnome release as well as a selection of server and desktop software that makes for a comfortable desktop experience off a single installation CD.
The following list covers some of the software components included as part of version 6.06 of the Ubuntu Desktop. Much of it (such as GIMP, OpenOffice.org and Firefox) is considered standard software for the free desktop (see Examples of Free Software).
* GNOME desktop environment and accessories
* Gedit text editor
* GIMP image editor
* Firefox web browser
* Gaim instant messenger
* Evolution email and personal information manager (PIM)
* OpenOffice.org office suite
* Synaptic software package manager
* Totem movie player

Most other free software can be obtained from the package repositories through Synaptic or the simplified Add/Remove Programs utility.

A wiki is a website or collaborative software that allows any user to add content, as on an Internet forum, but also allows that content to be edited by others.
