Ubuntu 17.10 is now available in its beta version

Ubuntu 17.10 Artful Aardvark

Ubuntu 17.10 development keep moving forward without pause. The proof is that today, we already have the Beta version of Ubuntu 17.10 ready. This Beta version is still a development version and is not stable, however, it will allow us to see first-hand the benefits of Canonical's new operating system.

Firstly, we can verify that we now have the Gnome 3.26 desktopSince we have already advanced these months, Ubuntu has decided to put Unity aside, after 6 long years, thus returning to its origins in Gnome.

In addition, now Wayland the one in charge of the graphics issue, leaving X.org aside, although it can still be used if we choose the option specifically. The kernel you have is Kernel 4.13, as previously mentioned.

LibreOffice 5.4 is pre-installed on this operating system as an office suite by default, in addition to the Gnome desktop applications, such as the calendar, which will replace those that previously came from Unity.

Ubuntu 17.10 is one of the most anticipated distributions in 2017, since despite not being an LTS version, it brings great changes and that is why it is expected. This beta version will allow us to test this operating system in depth and thus be able to check what it is made of.

The definitive exit from the system is scheduled for October 19, that is, within about a month. Before that, we will be able to enjoy the candidate or RC versions of it, in which, as usual, small changes will be added and errors corrected.

If you want to try Ubuntu 17.10, you can do it through here!, where you can choose the desktop "flavor" you want to try. Of course, remember that the recommendation is not to use it as a work team, since being a Beta version, it could contain bugs.

    Let's hope they make some significant change, why otherwise they would have continued with unity since the same can be done with the default gnome desktop.
