A Linux distribution (often abbreviated as distro) is an operating system made from a software collection that is based upon the Linux kernel and, often, a package management system. … The software is usually adapted to the distribution and then packaged into software packages by the distribution’s maintainers.

Ubuntu is a Linux-based operating system. It is designed for computers, smartphones, and network servers. The system is developed by a UK-based company called Canonical Ltd. All the principles used to develop the Ubuntu software are based on the principles of Open Source software development.
