INTRODUCTION
So, you like the idea of deploying an Ubuntu desktop to all or some of your users. You like the way Ubuntu’s light-client model can give your older desktop machines a new lease of life. Youlike the fact that Ubuntu is secure, portable, and easy to manage. Best of all, you like that it costs nothing to license, and comes with a host of enterprise-grade apps that cost nothing to license either.
Now it’s time to see how it works for you in the real world. To help you plan your migration, we’ve compiled our five golden rules for success. These are things we’ve learned from the hundreds ofUbuntu desktop migrations we’ve conducted for clients around the world – from the French National Police Force to the Supreme Court of India. You can use this book as a workbook as you plan your project. If at any time you need advice from the people who know Ubuntu best, please feel free to get in touch with us. We’re here to help your migration go as smoothly and as successfully as possible.The Canonical Desktop team

Business Case The rationale for the move to Ubuntu, and the benefits it will bring to individual users and to the organisation as a whole. Remember to factor in all license cost savings as well as savings from extending the life ofolder hardware (Ubuntu flies where Windows crawls). Pre-Support Environment How well is your support environment set up to manage the new Ubuntu users? Do you have the right capabilities across the planned hardware, OS, apps and networking? You may find you already have the right skills in place, but documenting any gaps will help you decide whether to boost your internal support function.Post-Support Environment The required support environment post-implementation and how you will achieve it (if it’s different from what you have today) – e.g. by training existing staff or hiring in Linux support skills. Addressing support needs now will reduce risk and give a fuller picture of the financial impact of the migration. Issues Handling How are technical issues currently handled – do you havean in-house software engineering team or is this something you escalate externally? Will you adopt the same approach for the Ubuntu implementation or will you handle it differently? Understanding your capabilities and limitations will ensure the right skills are available from the start.
