Ubuntu 14.04.5 is now available

Although in recent days we have seen how Ubuntu 16.04 was released to the public and also its great update, Canonical and the rest of Ubuntu have not forgotten other versions of Ubuntu. Recently came out the fifth update of Trusty Tahr, the so-called Ubuntu 14.04.5. If we have written and said well, Ubuntu 14.04.5.

The LTS version that came out in 2014 is still supported, an active support as seen today although we do not receive major changes or news, so many, including the Ubuntu team, recommend updating your operating system to version 16.04.1 LTS.

The new version of Ubuntu 14.04.5 incorporates the correction of quite a few bugs, bugs that have been appearing in these months and that endangered the stability of the version. Do not forget that an LTS version has a higher level of stability and security than normal.

Ubuntu 14.04.5 offers the stability that characterizes an LTS version

More hardware has also been incorporated, so from now on, Ubuntu 14.04.5 will be more compatible with hardware and with more hardware, although we also have changes in proprietary drivers that are loaded in kernel 4.4 that make Ubuntu 14.04.5 recognize more hardware than it did when it came out in 2014. The third point that changes in this update is certain software that made upload the distribution requirements, eliminating it and making that the distribution is less demanding in the installation. However, we do not have to fool ourselves, because the changes are minimal and it will not make Trusty Tahr work well now when it did not before, although it is true that it will work a little better than before.

I personally share the opinion of the Ubuntu team. If we really have a team with few resources, Ubuntu 14.04.5 with Lxde or Xfce is a great option, however if we have enough resources, upgrade to Ubuntu 16.04.1 is a must since its stability and security is greater without forgetting the new software that it incorporates What do you think?

    I have updated my computer to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS from version 14. It is a computer with a few years old Pentium IV 3.0 GHz 2 Gigs of RAM. It took me a couple of days to get it but it's done. And it is luxurious. I thought that after all the mischief that I had to do, I would have to format and do a clean installation but NO

    «... the update to Ubuntu 16.04.1 is mandatory since its stability and security is greater ...»
    Neither the stability nor the security of Ubuntu 16.04.1 is greater than that of Ubuntu 14.04.5. The 2014 LTS is more stable (it has been supported for years, while the current one takes months) and is just as secure as 16.04.1, since both use the same kernel and the components of both are patched equally every time something is found. security breach.
    A few days ago I decided to try 16.04.1 and it is still quite unstable compared to 14.04.5, which suits me perfectly.
