Ubuntu 16.04: Something to Get Excited About
It’s been quite some time since the Ubuntu faithful could be seriously excited about a release. With good reason. Over the past few years, Canonical has been hard at work trying to bring Unity 8/Mir/Convergence to fruition. Because of this, Ubuntu has suffered a long stretch of fairly boring releases.
That ends with 16.04. Xenial Xerus might well herald the final release for that will see Ubuntu paired with Unity 7/X.org. Thankfully, 16.04 has a few nice bits and pieces to offer in this next iteration—enough to get you excited.
