Elementary OS Loki will be based on Ubuntu 16.04

Elementary OS 0.4 Loki

Although some of you have already tested the environment What Elementary OS Loki will bring, the truth is that its development is still unknown. On the one hand we know that will be based on Ubuntu 16.04 and that it will have great news but we do not know anything about its release date or even what those news will point to.

If we know that Elementary OS Loki will have a better fit with HiDPI displays, displays increasingly popular among users' computers and also Twitter client Birdie will be included, something that we already knew for a long time. We also know that the first beta of the project will hit the streets in a short time since development is quite advanced according to the development website, but and the rest? Will there be any functional novelties? What will the new desktop bring?

I think Elementary OS Loki will be a version that seek the most perfection possible but also that it is the most stable of all the versions that the young distribution has. I also believe that new functions will be added as Apple is doing it on its desktop and as other Gnu / Linux desktops are doing it with their developments, such as Budgie from Solus or Gnome Desktop in its latest version.

Elementary OS Loki will be the first of many new distributions based on Ubuntu 16.04

In any case I think that the new version is getting closer and closer. If we look the developer's website, We see that there are only 32 uncorrected bugs left, something that after finishing solving could result in the first beta version of the operating system. In any case, Elementary OS Loki is the first of many distributions that are based on Ubuntu LTS and that will come out over the next few weeks, such as Linux Mint or LXLE, two distributions that will have new versions shortly, based on Ubuntu 16.04.

    It's nice, but I like it better with simpleDocs… it gives a greater sense of space.
