Ubuntu 20.04 Desktop Linux To Die For.



Iain Lane has announced the release of Ubuntu 20.04, a new long-term support (LTS) version of the popular distribution. “The Ubuntu kernel has been updated to the 5.4 based Linux kernel, with additional support for Wireguard VPN, AUFS5, and improved support for IBM, Intel, Raspberry Pi and AMD hardware. Ubuntu Desktop 20.04 LTS features the latest version of the GNOME desktop environment, 3.36. Notable changes from 18.04 LTS include performance improvements, a new lock screen design, and support for fractional scaling under X11. 20.04 LTS also features a new look-and-feel: the Yaru theme, available in both light and dark variants. 20.04 LTS also brings support for installing an Ubuntu desktop system on top of ZFS. The latest version brings performance enhancements and optional encryption support. Zsys, Ubuntu’s ZFS system tool, provides automated system and user state saving. Tight integration with GRUB allows a user to revert to any system state on boot and go back in time to pave the way to a bulletproof Ubuntu Desktop.

    Those who are not liking snaps don't need to panic. Ubuntu comes with two software apps. One is Ubuntu Software and other is named just Software. Now Ubuntu software doesn't support flatpaks but gnome software does. Just add flatpak repository to gnome software and also if you want to remove snaps which I will not recommend, you can type in the terminal
    sudo snap remove snap-store
    Remember this will delete the default ubuntu software center but you can install snaps fron Gnome software center. But if you don't want to have snaps at all you can just type in terminal
    sudo apt-get remove snapd
    Now you won't see snaps in your software center just apt packages and just flatpak if you have installed . Remember flatpak is supported by gnome software . Just name is changed. Software Center in 18.04 is now Software.

    Np Ubuntu 20.04 is not good as well i try to install it on Hp EliteBook 8560W and absolutely unsupported device drivers and everything was buggy and slowly. I am dont reccomending Ubuntu 20.04 on older Hardware. On official Ubuntu website are cannocial (developer of ubuntu) writing Ubuntu 20.04 is in Development version and Ubuntu 20.04 is not for Production and Enterprise machines. Only stable and 100% working Ubuntu is 18.04

    Hello Steve. Installed this a couple of days ago on a real potato. Tecra-M9 duo core, 2G ram. Running absolutely amazing. It is showing half RAM usage, but still silky smooth. No real issues at all, installed bags of 'extensions', new wallpaper, and mad-it-my-own. It REALLY is a leap forward for Ubuntu. I [of course!] do like tinkering, and there is plenty of scope for that, no doubt. With you all the way. Oh!! and almost forgot – doddle to install the last version of [REAL] 'Systemback', that will enable a migration of the build very simply to another machine. One caveat – purely personal – is that I have removed all the 'snap' functionality, and working with "Synaptic" and traditional 'apt' functionality where needed, and '.deb' files….
    Best wishes, stay safe mate…

    Thanks EB…great vid. I agree with you on the initial vs ongoing way the Snap packages work. I've noticed also a higher base level of RAM usage…but at the same time, ALL the apps I've got installed (either .deb or SNAP) run faster and appear to be more stable. Keep the videos coming…cheers!

    So EB, U can’t think of ANY reason that anyone should NOT use Ubuntu 20.04 … As It Is …And ‘screw’ all the other Ubuntu ‘Flavours’ ( & other Distro’s ) … Erm, How about the fact that there are millions of Linux users out there that just HATE the Gnome Desktop ! ! .. I use Arch & Debian but if i did ‘’use an Ubuntu’’ then i’d go with Mate. ( But i would still only install .Deb packages ) I’m afraid that Ubuntu FORCE FEEDING users Snap Packages has just driven me even further away from using ANY Ubuntu ‘Flavour’ …

    For me Ubuntu instalation and configuration was flawless, playing my Dark Souls 3 just like on manjaro, but less bloated and not needing me to change the theme.

    Ubuntu is by no means the best distro. Pop OS, Zorin OS, Elementary, all of those are better than standard Ubuntu.

    I have one disagreement with Ubuntu and it's very easy to fix. Personally, I think the side mounted dock is nonsensical. It just takes up room on your screen for no reason. I used a program to remove the dock and combine it with the top bar in one unified bar. It saves a lot of room on the desktop and you can get more screen real estate for your running programs. Other than that (which can be fixed in 5 minutes) Ubuntu 20.04 is perfect.

    EB, stop make me wanting to distrohop lol, I've been trying so hard not to hop on 20.04 because I know it's good but I'm trying not to hop… Finally settle in on Manjaro Plasma but Ubuntu makes me wanna switch lol. Might just do a clone and then switch haha. Much love EB :).

    I installed all the official Ubuntu 20.04 flavors to my hard drive just to see what they are like. Ubuntu is (and I thought I would never say this), an incredible distro and I think might just set the standard for what other distros need to do if they want to capture the desktop – laptop market. Just my two cents and Steve, another great video! Are you going to run a series on the features, practical use for everyday people etc? I think this distro deserves further exploration. It's so good!! 😁

    installed it on bare metal worked flawless on my dual core 2.2Ghz 4gb ram but gnome workflow isnt for me although they really did a great work on performance even on older machines like mine. i think apt and snaps should have separated store front or have the option to only show apt/deb or snaps only, for me that store is still a mess, its the only negative thing i have to say about 20.04 release.

    Have to agree with you EB. I haven't run Ubuntu proper on bare metal since 14.04 but this one is so excellent that I'm debating whether or not to put it on my main machine. Congrats all around to Wimpy and the desktop team, this one is a stunner.

    Great video my friend. I got Xubuntu. I'm the biggest XFCE fan girl around. It installed fast and runs freekin fast on my system. I was able to set it up how I like it fast. No problems right out of the box like you said. Have fun. Hugs
