The title says it...release is coming up soon, wondering if most are going upgrade immediately or wait a while for some feedback.


Whatever it was...I didn't do it!

I was just thinking about this tonight. I'll probably throw it up on one of my machines. But not fully switch over for a bit. Let the bugs get worked out mostly first.

I have been using Ubuntu 16.04 exclusively now for about 3 weeks. I love it.

I'm using Kubuntu, but have no plans to switch over to the 16.04 version in the near future as I'm currently quite happy with the 14.04 version.

That's what I was thinking too, as long as I have dvd's to play with.

Cool!  Anything you can share about improvements/fixes, or are you sworn to secrecy? (Kidding)

From experience the thing you want to do is wait a couple of weeks until the major bugs are fixed and all the big incompatibilities are known..

Chances are you won't be affected by any.. But just in case you are, save yourself the hassle and wait until there's a couple thousand of people that have tested it. (Or test it for me.. If you're a fan of backports, alternate kernels and screwy fixes to get your screen recognized :wink:)

is that a bird?  a plane? nooo it's the flying blueberry!

If I have been helping you and haven't replied in 2 days, feel free to shoot me a PM! Please don't send help request via PM, unless I am already helping you. Use the forums!

That was more or less the plan. :thumbup2:   Currently running Mint anyway, although I might try dual booting with Ubuntu depending on what the new one has going for it.  Current needs aren't much.

I would not expect nothing too new about 16.04 as they are stability releases, only kernel and newer software nothing cutting edge.

Its going to me more of the same really, but thats kind of a good thing,

The only changes I've read about (other than minor tweaks) are a new version of unity (everybody's favorite :wink:), a new package distribution set-up and making the Amazon thing opt-in.
