Ubuntu is ‘not changing to a rolling release’

Filed under
Ubuntu

Ubuntu’s Rick Spencer has issued a statement refuting the earlier claims reported by The Register that Ubuntu was to switch to ‘daily releases’.

Posting the statement on his blog, Rick said: -

“Ubuntu is not changing to a rolling release. We are confident that our customers, partners, and the FLOSS ecosystem are well served by our current release cadence.

What the article was probably referring to was the possibility of making it easier for developers to use cutting edge versions of certain software packages on Ubuntu. This is a wide-ranging project that we will continue to pursue through our normal planning processes.”

How to: Install Google Chrome web browser on Ubuntu Linux (and uninstall Firefox)

Ubuntu comes with a lot of quality software pre-installed. Unfortunately, the default web browser, Mozilla Firefox, has been on the decline -- it is slow and clunky. On Linux, Google Chrome is now the top web browser, and it is the best way to experience Adobe Flash content too (if you still need it). Installing Google Chrome on the Linux-based operating system is not totally straightforward. This is unfortunate, as the search-giant's web browser is an important part of having an overall quality experience on Ubuntu. Don't worry, however, as we will help you to both install the wonderful Google Chrome and uninstall the disappointing Mozilla Firefox. Read more
