The road to Ubuntu 16.04

Ubuntu 16.04 is just around the corner with only 2 months till the much anticipated release! Read below to find out what makes 16.04 so special?
I'll be posting a special cover getting whatever information I could get and post it here, until the release date.


Ubuntu 16.04 is an LTS (long term support distribution) which means it will have a longer support time than usual distributions (which usually gets around 9 months).

  • At the end of last month, the second alpha was released, while being far from ready, the real die hard fans will get it for sure! (not me, not on this connection!) it's not ready for use, but you can get a pretty good idea on how it's going to be! Many flavors skipped this like Ubuntu Gnome!
  • It's going to have the Kernel 4.4 which is in my opinion a huge jump from the last 3.19 shipped with the last LTS (14.04). Which will bring better 3D support and drivers for new hardware!
  • Many improvements and new versions of tools will be shipped, and unity will have some new features, most notably canceling the on-line search when inside the unity launcher.

You can tell I'm pretty excited, this is the real news, a system for humans!
You can notice I added  a counter for the release date, almost 73 days to go! (at the time of this writing), and with the launching of the new Ubuntu tablet, the momentum is real!

Ubuntu 16.04, please don't disappoint us!
