Relax, it's just Ubuntu 15.04. AARGH! IT'S FULL OF SYSTEMD!!!
Most users will notice very little overall difference in this latest Ubuntu release, but it’s this change that packs the biggest punch.
There are a couple of new things that make 15.04 worth the upgrade from previous versions, but the really big changes – like the move to Unity 8 and the whole "convergence" of the desktop and mobile versions – remain in the future.
In the online Ubuntu summit on Monday, Mark Shuttleworth announced that the 15.10 release of Ubuntu, due out in October, will be codenamed Wily Werewolf. Other names that I liked were Wooley Wammoth and Wicked Wabbit. The 15.10 release will see more work on convergence ready for the LTS release next year.
Ubuntu 15.04 review: Beauty or “boring” is in the eye of the beholder
Snow melts and trees blossom, but nothing really says spring around the Ars Orbital HQ like the arrival of a new version of Ubuntu Linux. Right on schedule, Canonical has recently released Ubuntu 15.04, also known as Vivid Vervet.
Ubuntu 15.04 arrived in late April and has, judging by other reviews, largely underwhelmed. According to the popular storyline, there's not much new in 15.04. Of course, a slew of changes and unforeseen features in 15.04 could have just as easily earned a negative reaction, probably from the same people calling the actual release boring. The top of the Linux mountain is a lonely, criticism-strewn place.
The truth is, this line of thought is partially correct. There isn't much new in 15.04, at least not in terms of visible changes to the Unity desktop.
