Vsftpd is one of the most secure and fastest FTP servers for Linux. Usually vsftpd is configured to work with system users.

This tutorial shows how you can set up an Ubuntu 12.10 desktop that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows desktop, i.e. that has all the software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops.
