It sounds like the title of a joke or the entry of an Innocents Day post, but far from any joke and fantasy, it’s a reality. It is unknown what changes will begin in the distribution of Canonical but there will be major changes in Ubuntu, so much so that it will be unrecognizable. On the occasion of an event organized by Canonical on Ubuntu, at the Ubuntu Developer Summit, Canonical will announce things that will change in the next version of Ubuntu. It will also match a long Support version, so the changes will not be a joke.
What will Canonical change?
We all know by now that Canonical will change the Graphic Server, replacing Xorg with Mir. But a few hours ago more changes have been known, one of them will be the treatment of hard drives. As of Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu will recognize Solid State disks or SSDs by default, So a TRIM system will be introduced which is the technology that controls this type of hard drives and preserves it to the maximum of data deterioration and loss. It is unknown which TRIM method will be used but this change is almost certain, so I imagine there will be a lot of controversy, regardless of the issue of choosing the method to use TRIM.
The parcel, something else to change
A few weeks ago there was speculation about the change of package, if it was going to leave deb or introduce another system, or change one for another or just create a new parcel system. It seems that Canonical has learned from the Wayland affair and directly created a new system that will be introduced in Ubuntu 14.04. The system is called Click Packages and for now will coexist with deb though as happened with the Software Center, Will reach a point where click Packages will replace deb. This type of package will allow you to use web applications and other types of apps on your Unity desktop. On the other hand, the Software Center will also be rewritten because, among other things, it allows the installation of this new package. The idea of this rewrite is to create a clean, tidy, minimal code, so a limit of 300 lines of code has been set.
Another interesting point to know is that the distribution installation methods will change, To what extent? I don’t know, all I know is that the boot disk creation program will be changed. In addition there will be more changes, but of a smaller type, such as the redesign of the iconography, the correction of bugs, etc …
The week that will be a week mogudeta as for Canonical and its distribution, it had to withstand a lot of criticism and fit in well to get its community that Ubuntu will change. I think this process of change is normal, it’s natural. Since she left she has been related and considered the daughter of Debian, this has brought her some problems and many joys, but she does not like your work to be classified as modification of Debian or computer x, or developer i. Although all these changes will eventually end the spirit and community of Ubuntu. These are important changes that should not be taken lightly and without trying one by one to try to include them all in a long version of Support, the Community will understand that it is dispensed with and then it will no longer be worthwhile to apologize through ‘a block.
On the other hand, I do not criticize the changes themselves, they are certainly very good, but the presentation of them hurts everyone, in my most sincere opinion. What do you think?
