Ubuntu have just recently made available the beta version of Ubuntu 20.10 ahead of the final release which should be upon us around October the 22nd of this year. The ISO size weighs in at a rather large 2.8GB which might just be a record for the largest ISO size we’ve seen from Ubuntu before! The main features of this new release are GNOME 3.38, Linux Kernel 5.8 and Active Directory can now be setup in the Ubiquity installer. Unfortunately we’re still left hanging on the new Groovy Gorilla wallpapers as they haven’t as of yet been unveiled. On first impressions it all feels responsive and snappy which could be attributed in part to the performance improvements made in GNOME 3.38. If you’d like to learn more about the new features in GNOME 3.38 click here. I’m eager to spend more time with this up until and beyond the final release.
Over the next few days I’ll be taking a look at some of the other flavours of Ubuntu 20.10. I’m most excited about Ubuntu Budgie’s 20.10 release as overtime that has become my favourite flavour that Ubuntu has to offer.
