You could demonstrate ubuntu on a live CD, and talk about the various U.I. elements. You can talk about the history of ubuntu and how it changed the linux world. Talk about what makes ubuntu unique, its target market, the community, and why it was successful(relatively). There is a lot you can say.

Thank you for those pointers. We're limited to PowerPoint. The goal is to see how ubuntu compared to other OS's. Another grouopo is assigned with Linux so "how it changed linux world" would make a good point. "1. Lineage/origins 2. File system – at the core of any OS 3. Security – what’s the track record? 4. Stability – average uptimes 5. Portability & Min Hard Requirements – what can we run this on? 6. Innovations – what has or will put it on the map? 7. Retail Price and Market share – server and/or desktop" I've been reading "About-ubuntu & Ubuntu-and-debian & Canonical-and-ubuntu". –  nuocmam Mar 17 '12 at 14:46
