About OMG! Ubuntu!

We are the world’s biggest and most popular Linux-orientated ‘web magazine’.

Founded back 2009 as a way to ‘keep track’ of tips and tweaks, the site has since evolved into an active, vocal and prominent member of the Ubuntu and wider Linux community.

What do we do?

  • We cover the latest Ubuntu news and developments
  • Review and showcase the latest apps (and their changes)
  • Give opinion and insight on various issues facing Ubuntu and Linux
  • Interview members of the Ubuntu community and beyond
  • Produce informative tutorials and guides (in both text and video)
