Ubuntu 17.04 Zesty Zappus

During the last hours the new Ubuntu 2 Alpha 17.04 has been released, an alpha that has several flavors like Ubuntu, so it will help us see and know the next details of Ubuntu.

This Alpha 2 can be downloaded and tested on any computer, however, this is not highly recommended in production equipment as it may cause a problem or error that makes the equipment useless or deletes data, that is why it is recommended to install it on machines that are more secure and allows us to test the version.

The official flavors as well as the official flavor of Ubuntu 17.04 do not present great changes since we told you the arrival of the new kernel to the version, but if it deserves special attention the Alpha 2 of Ubuntu Budgie 17.04, a new flavor that for the first time follows the official Ubuntu calendar.

Ubuntu Budgie will have a setup wizard for newbies like we can in Alpha 2

In this case we have a distribution that still using Budgie 10.2.9, the latest version of Budgie stable, kernel 4.9 and a novice wizard to help us install the web browser as well as other necessary installations and configurations. Terminix and Gnome-MVP will also be present in Ubuntu Budgie 17.04. Ubuntu Budgie 17.04 is expected to have Budgie version 11 but it was something we should have seen by now and haven't.

The rest of the flavors go ahead and show the respective news, updated desktops and programs that the main version includes. In addition to Ubuntu Budgie, Ubuntu Gnome draws attention, a flavor that incorporates the flatpak package to the distribution as well as Gnome 3.22 with parts with Gnome 3.20, something striking to say the least.
