Nel frattempo tra le novità più degne di nota di Ubuntu 17.10 troviamo il passaggio dall’ambiente grafico Unity a una versione modificata di GNOME Shell. Soprattutto riprende alcuni elementi di Unity per garantire la continuità dell’esperienza utente.
Allo stesso modo X.Org viene abbandonato in favore del server grafico Wayland, così come LightDM viene sostituito da GDM. Tuttavia al momento attuale è stato confermato l’utilizzo del kernel Linux 4.12, ma gli sviluppatori stanno esplorando la possibilità di utilizzare Linux 4.13. Anche se quest’ultima sarà l’ultima versione stabile disponibile al momento del rilascio e potrebbe portare all’adozione di Linux 4.14 con Ubuntu 18.04 – entrambi rilasci a lungo supporto (LTS, Long-Term Support).

Soprattutto per chi vuole un desktop leggero e performante:
Xubuntu 17.10 “Artful Aadvark”.
The Xubuntu team has announced the release of Xubuntu 17.10. Ubuntu 17.10 include significant improvements to accelerated video playback on Intel video cards. The distribution also includes support for driverless printing and includes the GNOME Font Viewer by default. “GNOME Font Viewer is now included by default. This application simplifies viewing and installing fonts. Client side decorations (CSD) now consume much less space with the Greybird GTK+ theme. New device, mimetype, and monochrome panel icons have been included with the elementary-xfce icon theme.
We usually link directly to the Ubuntu release notes, but there are several significant improvements that affect all flavours and our users: Accelerated video playback with Intel hardware should now work more reliably out of the box. The changes might also bring some performance improvements for Parole and Chromium users. Bluetooth and USB audio devices should now work better by default due to changes in BlueZ and PulseAudio. Driverless printing has been added to Ubuntu. This provides support for most modern printers: IPP Everywhere, Apple AirPrint, Mopria, PCLm, and Wifi Direct as supported. Other printers can still be added from the Printers dialog.” Further information can be found in the project’s release announcement. Download: xubuntu-17.10-desktop-amd64.iso (1,251MB, SHA256, signature, torrent, pkglist).

Martin Wimpress has announced the release of Ubuntu MATE 17.10. The new version features a number of desktop changes, including a global menu bar placed at the top of the screen. The 17.10 release also features an improved Heads-Up Display (HUD) which makes it possible to search through application menus using only the keyboard. “This is something we started during Ubuntu MATE 16.10 and never perfected, but is now ready for prime time.
A favourite of Unity 7 users is the Heads-Up Display (HUD) which provides a way to search for and run menu-bar commands without your fingers ever leaving the keyboard. So if you’re trying to find that single filter in GIMP but can’t remember which filter category it fits into or if you can’t recall if preferences sits under File, Edit or Tools on your favourite browser. You can just search for it rather than hunting through the menus. Just like Global Menus the HUD is currently only available via the Contemporary, Cupertino and Mutiny [layouts].” Further information on this release, along with screen shots, can be found in the project’s release announcement. Download: ubuntu-mate-17.10-desktop-amd64.iso (1,706MB, SHA256, signature, torrent, pkglist).
Di conseguenza avete una ampia scelta per installare la vostra distro preferita.
Ancora una volta ribadisco: le derivate le hanno fatte proprio per quel motivo. Anche perchè si possono in installare tranquillamente in altri desktop. Di conseguenza mi sembra altamente riduttivo limitarsi solo a Ubuntu. Anvcora una volta c’è un’ampia scelta di DE e non vedo perchè limitarsi a Unity o a Gnome.
