Easy Administration of Ubuntu Linux using Ubuntu Control Center - Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat)

Ubuntu Control Center or UCC is an application inspired by the Mandriva Control Center that aims to centralize and organize in a simple and intuitive configuration of the main tools of the Ubuntu Linux distribution. UCC uses all the native applications on Ubuntu, but also makes use of third party applications as Hardinfo, Boot-up Manager, Gufw, Startup-Manager, jstest-gtk and Font-manager and the brand new VGA-switcher that uses the module vga-switchero kernel 2.6.35.

Ubuntu Control Center is an excellent application for those who want to centralize various options and settings of Ubuntu in one place, in which items are grouped according to categories, this application can be used by any user without problems.
