I second that motion, this is not a discussion Topic.

 

Al covered what to do in regards to discussion well. :)

 

It's OK to post something discovered to benefit others, yet discussing this requires one to create their own Topic. 

 

Thank You for your cooperation. :)

Here's hoping they ironed some of the bugs out.

The first beta of the Yakkety Yak (to become 16.10) has now been released!

This milestone features images for Lubuntu, Ubuntu GNOME, Ubuntu Kylin, Ubuntu MATE, Ubuntu Studio.

Pre-releases of the Yakkety Yak are not encouraged for anyone needing a stable system or anyone who is not comfortable running into occasional, even frequent breakage. They are, however, recommended for Ubuntu flavor developers and those who want to help in testing, reporting and fixing bugs as we work towards getting this bos grunniens ready.

Beta 1 includes a number of software updates that are ready for wider testing. These images are still under development, so you should expect some bugs.

While these Beta 1 images have been tested and work, except as noted in the release notes, Ubuntu developers are continuing to improve the Yakkety Yak. In particular, once newer daily images are available, system installation bugs identified in the Beta 1 installer should be verified against the current daily image before being reported in Launchpad. Using an obsolete image to re-report bugs that have already been fixed wastes your time and the time of developers who are busy trying to make 16.10 the best Ubuntu release yet. Always ensure your system is up to date before reporting bugs.

Finally Linux MInt 18 KDE for the users of that DE, as well as Mint 18 Xfce for the minimum DE users to build onto (or run as is). Unlike Cinnamon & MATE, Linux Mint designed, the distro has zero control over KDE & Xfce releases, these are released as they come & after the MInt team places their elegant touches onto these distros. 

 

https://www.linuxmint.com/release.php?id=27

 

MInt KDE is an alternate to Kubuntu & Mint Xfce is an alternate to Xubuntu, both has been in the Mint family for years, actually before Cinnamon & MATE were. By chance, Linux Mint 1 was KDE based. :)

Ubuntu 17.04 (Zesty Zapus) Daily Build

I wouldn’t recommend that you go on to install Ubuntu 17.04 just yet. If you are a developer or if you would like to help Ubuntu in testing the upcoming release, you can get the Ubuntu 17.04 daily builds from the link below:

re : Hybryde Linux .... what happened to it  ? .

 

See this thread ( post #55 ) for more details of this OS

https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/636241/cinnamon-or-xfce-desktop/page-4

 

It seems to be dead in the water , although Distrowatch states ; 

  Status : Dormant    Last Update: 2016-07-01   ??

:unsure:

 

I have searched my substantial collection of Linux ISOs and it's not there .

Unless somebody reading has an ISO , and can share it ( in a way that respects the rules of this forum ) I can't suggest anything more .

Parental Control application for Linux is bit hard to find, if you encounter any then it may be outdated or just don't work as per your wish, they just restrict internet access or sort of stuff. If someone uses your computer or you let your kids use your computer. You can restrict access for them as you want, from now you don't have to say your kids to leave computer, Timekpr will do it better. You can call Timekpr restriction application or parental control application, whatever you like to call it.
Timekpr take control over user account on computer, it will automatically block access for their account, behaves as you configure the restrictions. But it only works with "Standard" accounts, which means those accounts aren't considered administrators/root accounts, but still "Standard" has access to root directory (if added to some groups or sudo is installed). You can limit their daily usage based on a timed access duration and configure periods of day when they can or cannot log in. With this application, administrators can limit account login time duration or account access hours.
