Ubuntu isn't about choice though. One of Ubuntu's foundational
principles was that it would be a Linux distribution where the
developers make the intelligent, informed decisions so people don't
have to answer 20 questions just to use it. For instance, only one web
browser is installed by default.

On the other hand, Ubuntu isn't a prison either. There's lots of
browsers and desktop environments available in universe, and generally
there are lots of ways to customize your Ubuntu. There's a strong
focus on usability though which limits available choices, such as in
System Settings.
