Although there is still a long time for the future Ubuntu 17.10 to come out, details are beginning to be known about the future and brand new Canonical operating system. In this case, it has been announced that it will come with Kernel 4.13 installed, a Kernel that does not yet exist, but that will be more than ready by then.
The funny thing is that has not yet been officially released Not even the kernel 4.12, which is on its latest RC versions, but which has a minimum of a couple of weeks left to be stable. From the looks of it, Canonical is a company that likes to plan very long-term.
This is because Ubuntu 17.10 it will bring some groundbreaking changes. This operating system will bring Gnome back as the default desktop, after the failure of the Unity desktop, and will bring other new features such as integration with Wayland.
For the moment, not much else is known about the system, since at the moment not even an alpha version has come out. The only thing that is coming out are the famous Daily Builds, in which little news is added every day to this operating system, which is still "a larva." At the moment, the operating system still has Kernel 4.11, but will be updated to 4.12 when it is released in a stable way.
We can enjoy the first Alpha on the 29th of this month, but there would still be 4 months of development for the stable version. As usual in Ubuntu operating systems, it will be released in the month of October, it will be called Artful Aardvark and it will have a support of 9 months, that is, until July 2018, since it is not an LTS version.
Without a doubt, this operating system promises despite the time that is still missing. For the moment, we will have to settle for its previous version, Ubuntu 17.04.
