Canonical Releases Ubuntu 17.10 With Biggest Changes in Years

I am not always keen about Ubuntu updates because most times they seem to be boring to my taste, and that might be because these updates come twice in every 12 months. But frankly, Ubuntu 17.0 (codenamed Artful Aardvark) which was released by Canonical a few hours ago really cut my attention and it’s actually kind of a big deal. Ubuntu 17.10 comes with a new default desktop manager, display server, and a whole bunch of more modest updates. It’s also going to be a bit more work to install the operating system on computers with 32-bit processors.

Ubuntu 17.04 or Ubuntu 16.04 (32-bit) users will have to boot into the GNOME desktop environment upon completion of the upgrade process… but Canonical won’t delete Unity. So if you’d rather continue to use the Unity environment you can do that… but it won’t receive much support moving forward. Another thing is that there won't be a lot of support anymore because starting from this release, Canonical will no longer offer 32-bit disk images for download for Ubuntu for 32-bit systems.

If you’re already running a 32-bit build of Ubuntu, you can still upgrade to the latest version and you can still use a Netinst. Users with computers that is powered by older CPU can use MinimalCD image to load Ubuntu onto their machines. Other changes in Ubuntu 17.10 are as follows:

1.   By default, the exit, minimize, and maximize buttons will now show up on the right side of application windows 

2.   The operating system ships with the Linux kernel 4.13 and lots of other applications and packages in their latest updates.

3.   There is also a new default wallpaper

For users you want to try it out or perform a fresh installation, you can go ahead and visit this link to download the 64-bit desktop ISO images and torrents. Ubuntu 17.0 codenamed Artful Aardvark is distributed in the form of an ISO image that lets you try it without changing anything on your computer.
