Ubuntu 18.04 LTS will come with acceleration for the boot process

Ubuntu LTS 18.04

Canonical continues to develop the future Ubuntu LTS 18.04 (codenamed Bionic Beaver) that will come with a new look after leaving Unity and using the same graphical shell that comes standard GNOME, although the developers will keep some Unity features that have been successful, therefore the new distribution is expected to have important changes of appearance in its interface with respect to the base GNOME that you can find in other distros. But in addition to these visual details, we are also beginning to learn about other technical aspects that the new distribution has in store for us ...

In fact, Will Cooke from Canonical, has published today a newsletter with some news that Ubuntu 18.04 LTS will bring to inform the entire community of the development process of the company's next operating system. And it seems that in addition to those improvements in the graphical aspect of the GNOME desktop environment, the Canonical team is also working on improving the system startup speed so that we spend less time watching how our computer goes from being off to having the desktop completely available. For that they are going to use some of the features of systemd that will help them identify the processes that may be slowing down the startup.

When they finish the study on what they can do to have a much faster boot they will start working on it so that Ubuntu 18.04 LTS turns on like lightning, or at least as fast as possible as Will has reported. And not only will the packages be updated, including the kernel, to offer more modern versions and some bugs will be corrected as usual, it seems that this distro will have some more pampering and attention from the developers after leaving Ubuntu Phone and we can have new themes, and a revamped Network Manager.

Regarding the work of the themes, we will work not only on the visual aspect but also on improving the responsiveness of the applications with the new Wayland graphics server in response to mouse clicks. The Ubuntu Desktop team developers who take care of the desktop also work closely with the GNOME development community to fix and improve some imperfections. What has also been known is that they will stick with the Nautilus manager to ensure compatibility. And that's not forgetting more updates for the famous snaps packages, etc.

    Apparently they will use Xorg by default for this new LTS

    When will this new OS be available?
    And I hope this time they improve the software store and include more programs

    Van Helsing, try to guess what the .04 and .10 mean that are always attached to Ubuntu versions ;-)

      They are releases, one is LTS and one is stable. The LTS is 04, every 2 years.
