What is Linux?
Linux is a free, efficient and secured operating system. Unlike Microsoft Windows and other proprietary systems, Linux is publicly open and extendible by contributors.
What is Ubuntu?
Ubuntu is a popular Linux distribution, designed with the intent of overthrowing Microsoft Windows as the world's most widely-used operating system.
The distro is composed entirely of open source components, which have been heavily modified for easy of use and migration for users familiar with Microsoft Windows, take a look here. The name Ubuntu is derived from the Zulu word for humanity, which has been incorporated into South African culture as "humanity towards others".
Ubuntu Muslim Edition customizes the Ubuntu distro by installing islamic softwares (prayer times, Quran study tool, Arabic learning software etc.) and by changing its "look".
Version 0.2 is released! (it's an early beta release) See the downloads section.
