Top 10 Ideas for Upcoming Ubuntu Releases

Filed under
Ubuntu

Ubuntu Brainstorm is a wiki-like interface that allows the Ubuntu community to input ideas that might make Ubuntu more usable, friendly, or fun. Almost 20,000 ideas have been entered and have received 2.5 million votes in the two years since its introduction. Entries can be sorted by all ideas, popular ideas, ideas in development, or implemented ideas. Matt Zimmerman, Debian developer and Canonical employee, thinks it might be a good idea to periodically collect and discuss the current status and future possibilities of the most popular ideas.

Zimmerman recently gathered the first batch of 10. Here are some of the more interesting:

In this article, I'll offer a candid view between the two options by examining the core differences between running a rolling release and using an LTS type release distribution. Read more
