Ubuntu 18.04 LTS is around the corner. As promised, I am here with the review of Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver with a voice over. Please ignore my accent 😉
Not much has changed since we last saw the beta preview. There is the new welcome screen that gives the option to opt out of data collection.
There are some non-visal changes as well:
– GNOME Shell now supports Thunderbolt 3
– Updated software and libraries
– Python 3.6
– For fresh installs, swap file will be used by default instead of the swap partition
– You can no longer encrypt just the home option using ecryptfs-utils at the time of installation. It is recommended to use full-disk encryption instead.
