Upgrade to Ubuntu on the Windows Marketplace

Filed under
Ubuntu

This is a very good thing, a very bad thing or a complete and total blunder by someone. The Ubuntu desktop is listed for free download on the Windows marketplace complete with description and user reviews.

Ubuntu is listed under Bios and System Updates on the Windows Marketplace. There doesn’t seem to be any logical reason for it to be listed here. It’s neither a Bios nor system update, unless the purpose of putting it there was to keep it hidden but then that would be silly.

If someone wants to download Ubuntu, I doubt very much they would be searching on the Windows Marketplace.

A Short MATE Desktop 1.17 Review in February 2017

MATE 1.17 is a testing release, it has no official announcement like 1.16 stable release (odd = unstable, even = stable). But what made me interested is because Ubuntu MATE 17.04 includes it by default so I write this short review. The most fundamental news is about MATE Desktop is now completely ported to GTK+3 leaving behind GTK+2. You may be interested seeing few changes and I have tried Ubuntu MATE 17.04 Alpha 2 to review MATE 1.17 below. Enjoy MATE 1.17! Read more Also: What's up with the hate towards Freedesktop?
