Ubuntu 16.04 Brings More Privacy and Big Changes to the Desktop

Ubuntu

The release of Ubuntu 16.04 last week is good news for computer users who are upset over the recent development of Microsoft turning Windows into an operating system that is essentially spyware. As an open-source Linux distribution, Ubuntu is a great operating system for users concerned about privacy.

This marks the 24th release of the Ubuntu operating system, which has become perhaps the most popular Linux distribution in the world. Ubuntu 16.04 — codenamed Xenial Xerus — is also the sixth Long Term Support (LTS) release, meaning it will receive free security updates and support for five years. Canonical — the UK software company which sponsors Ubuntu — has continued to show its commitment to providing a solid, smooth, reliable, open-source operating system for the desktop even while working toward convergence of the desktop, phone, and tablet into one seamless operating system.

    Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial is an exciting release for many users who prefer to use LTS version, it has new application packages and features.

Aquaris M10 HD Ubuntu Edition review

Ubuntu

A few months ago when the Aquaris M10 with Ubuntu was announced I was very excited. First of all the first device with convergence, a dream of Canonical even before Microsoft told a word about "one (scaled down) Windows". But also the first (commercial) tablet with the Linux kernel. And of course an ARM chip! We all know what happened to WinRT, but there is one difference here. It's ubuntu. They have the source of 99% of the packages people use + they have official ports to ARM already available! (I even use those to host this blog) So with XMir it is able to run all those apps.

Taking ZFS For A Test Drive On Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

Filed under
Ubuntu

One of the most recurring requests this week from Phoronix readers were for doing some ZFS file-system tests on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. Here are some basic results using a single SSD.

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS makes it easy to deploy a ZFS file-system utilizing ZFS On Linux. All of the necessary ZOL components are in place from the DKMS module support to the user-space utilities that are part of the main packaging archive, but not installed by default when using the desktop ISO. It's as easy as a sudo apt-get install zfs-dkms zfsutils-linux for getting running with ZFS on the Xenial Xerus release.
