    Friday, October 07, 2011: Now, the Supreme Court of India has directed all the courts across the nation to switch over to Ubuntu 10.04. The apex court has also given all the courts customised Ubuntu Linux DVD for installation.

    Over 17,000 courts across the country were using Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 for the last four years. The e-committee of the Supreme Court Of India has issued a circular for 'Guidelines for Roll-out and Installation of Ubuntu Linux for Indian Judiciary' for the purpose. The circular talks about the replication and installation of the Ubuntu Linux operating system.

    The circular says that an acknowledgment of Installation & Receipt of Ubuntu Linux OS DVD be given by the judicial officers in the prescribed form.

    A detailed video tutorial and a PDF file containing 25 salient features of Ubuntu Linux OS DVD have also been created and uploaded on the Supreme Court website. The circular asks all the system officers and system assistants working under the eCourts project be instructed to download and watch the video and understand the contents of the PDF file, so that they can enable themselves to provide support to the judicial officers and courts for installation and use of Ubuntu Linux OS in laptops and desktops.

    It instructs immediate circulation of 'Ubuntu Installation & Features Video' to all the judicial officers so that they can understand the same before DVD reaches them. “The Ubuntu Linux operating system can be installed by the judicial officer on his own also as the installation process is very easy, intuitive and self-explanatory. In fact, it shall be a welcome change and a desired enablement on the part of the judicial officers if they become self-dependent in this aspect also. It is only required to be instructed to all the judicial officers that if they are installing the Ubuntu Linux in their laptops by themselves, they should first download and watch the video available on the Supreme Court of India's website. They must then take the backup of their data. Only then, they should proceed with the installation,” mentions the circular...

    Ubuntu is a good OS, though why not 11.04?

    Don't know why they switched from Red Hat to Ubuntu, a switch to Scientific Linux would have made more sense

    Probably because 10.04 is a Long Term support version.

    I upgraded my Ubuntu 10.10 with 11.04 and oh my god !! 11.04 stands no where before 10.10 or 10.04, it was buggy and in my opinion it needs almost an year to be stable like 10.10 or 10.04. Day before yesterday i downloaded Ubuntu 11.10 and tried it in live mode but still i think it needs almost one year to become mature and stable with Unity interface. Currently i am on Ubuntu 10.10 (Ultimate Edition 2.9) :) and no doubt Ubuntu 10.04.3 is the most stable Linux distro ever and SC is hinting at 10.04.3 :rolleyes:
