With an eye already on next October 13, the date on which the final version of Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak) will be releasedWe would like to launch a survey among our users to find out which of you will update your computers to this new version of the operating system.
The question is clear and direct, and considering the new options it will offer Ubuntu 16.10 It is time to consider if this migration is worth it or if it is preferable for a while to consolidate the distribution of our team.
A few days after the launch of Ubuntu 16.10 we want to make a poll among our readers to know your disposition towards the new version of the Ubuntu operating system. Before giving an answer, we are going to compile a series of issues that would motivate a migration to the latest version of the Canonical company system.
- Ubuntu 16.10 assumes a regular distribution of the system and does not enjoy the benefits of extended support that Canonical brings to other editions. This means that the release of patches for the system that correct security problems, improvements in the code that improve applications or updates that provide greater stability to the team as a whole, will cease in the period of nine months.
- The estimated life time is a really short period and it is certainly not suitable for all users, especially those who have problems of deployment on their computers. If you are running the Ubuntu 16.04 LTS version (or even another flavor of Linux), it is a very important factor to consider: keep the current system in favor of stability or turn to a new one in search of new functionalities.
- Moreover, the new kernel Linux Provide better support for your equipment components, improve some of the really outdated system packages, and can provide new features needed in your environment.
- Updating the system also takes time. Time in which your environment may be without service, or in which incompatibility problems may arise later once the systems have started. Perhaps it is a very wise idea to wait a while for the first errors detected in the system to be corrected, and to keep all systems as they are until they are solved.
Here is the survey for you to vote. We know that there are many cases that will not fit the answers, so you can leave your comments with the opinions and those nuances that you consider.
