Ubuntu: Landing team 18.05.15

Filed under
Ubuntu

Hello everyone,

Everyone's slowly preparing for the OTA planned at the end of the month.
The list of issues that have been scheduled for this milestone can be
found on the ww22-2015 LP milestone [1]. There are some connectivity
fixes on the way, but not only that - good stuff in overall. With the
release of OTA-4 the stable branch will officially become vivid based.
There's not too many visual changes coming with this switch, but there
are a few things we didn't back-port to 14.09 before.
Of course, the timing all depends on the state of the candidate images,
so no promises on the release date yet.

Ubuntu

For as long as I can remember people have been creating Linux distributions with a view to emulating the look and feel of other operating systems such as Windows and OSX.

For instance there used to be an Linux distribution called Lindows which obviously attempted to emulate Windows and more recently Zorin OS has produced a desktop that looks and feels like Windows 2000, Windows 7 and OSX.
