We continue to discount time for the launch of the Yakkety Yak brand of the operating system developed by Canonical. If a couple of hours ago you We talked From the launch of the second Ubuntu GNOME 16.10 beta, now it's time to do the same, but with another flavor of Ubuntu that I personally like a little more: Lubuntu 16.10 beta 2 is now available for download for all those users who want to try it before its launch next month.
On the official page where they speak to us of this new version they say the same thing that I usually say to any software in the testing phase, warning that this previous release it is not recommended for average users who are not familiar with these types of releases, users who need a stable system, those who do not want to experience unexpected problems and those who, ultimately, want or need to use a stable environment.
Lubuntu 16.10 is officially coming next month
In the same way that they tell us who this beta is not recommended for, they also tell us for whom it is recommended, what users want help finding and reporting / correcting bugs, Lubuntu developers, and people who want to see what's coming before its official release.
The Yakkety Yak brand will not be or come close to being as important as the launch of the Xenial Xerus brand, something that will even occur in a standard version of Ubuntu 16.10 that will arrive with the main novelty of the possibility of choosing the Unity 8 graphical environment By default, the graphical environment will continue to be Unity 7. As for Lubuntu, we can highlight that this beta comes with the Linux Kernel 4.8.
As I mentioned above, I would not recommend installing this second beta of Lubuntu 16.10, and more if we take into account that the past April the most up-to-date LTS was released. Of course, as always, if you decide to install it (available from THIS LINK), do not hesitate to leave your experiences in the comments.
