Is Ubuntu communist?

Yes! Absolutely.
Ubuntu is a COMMUNITY and not a fortune 500 corp.
The words that begin with COMM such as commune or common often suggest communism. (From Wikipedia: Communism comes from the Latin word communis, which means "shared" or "belong to all".)
Ubuntu is free! Capitalism alway has a price tag.
Whether or not Ubuntu was developed in communist or socialist regimes does not matter. It is a pure form of theoretical communism. (I once knew a Cuban girl who told me, "Ya know, communism is great, in theory." I said, "Yeah, so is democracy and capitalism. Not so great in practice, though...)
I hate to reference the bible, but here goes:
Jesus and his disciples held all of their property in common. Hmmm... Doesn't seem to resemble capitalism much to me. Sorry right-wing conservatives, but there it is...
So communism can be a good thing to benefit mankind then?
Sure looks like it.
Look up the word UBUNTU (Philosophy) on Google or Wikipedia. It will further Clarify the question.
Ubuntu (Zulu/Xhosa pronunciation: [ùɓúntʼú]; English: /ʊˈbʊntuː/ uu-buun-too) or "uMunthu" (Chichewa) is an African ethic or humanist philosophy focusing on people's allegiances and relations with each other. Some believe that ubuntu is a classical African philosophy or worldview[1] whereas others point out that the idea that ubuntu is a philosophy or worldview has developed in written sources in recent years.[2] The word has its origin in the Bantu languages of southern Africa.
I love my UBUNTU with Gnome3. If I didn't play video games, I would never run another Microsoft OS or App.
