These days, from May 3 to 5, the Ubuntu Online Summit for Ubuntu 16.10 Yakkety Yak is being held, where Ubuntu developers are making plans for the future. One of the decisions they have communicated recently is that the next version of Ubuntu will not come with Unity 8, so those who want to try it in its final version will have to keep waiting. At the top they will also have had time to talk about Snappy Ubuntu Core 16, An operating system that should arrive in the coming weeks.
Snappy Ubuntu 16 was to be released as an extension of version 15.04, a version that was released in April 2015 as part of Ubuntu 15.04 Live Velvet. Virtually all of the code has since changed, and Canonical promises that the list of changes will be much larger than might be expected at first. From my point of view, in this way the developers of Ubuntu will be giving Snappy Ubuntu 16 the importance that all operating systems of the brand deserve. Great Xerus.
Snappy Ubuntu 16 will be a snap package
No official ISO image of Snappy Ubuntu Core 16 (not even an Alpha version) is currently available. The reason is that there are still some things to implement and polish before the version can be considered ready for use on production devices. In any case, if you are interested in irritable Ubuntu 16, you should know that everything will be snap packages, Such as the kernel, applications and the operating system itself.
On the other hand, there will be one new partition design for Snappy Ubuntu 16 simpler than the previous one, which will take up less space and will be divided into two main partitions, / boot i / writing, Where the snaps will be stored. The boot loader or will also be present bootloader which switches between kernel, operating system, and snaps.
In the coming weeks, the developers of Snappy Ubuntu plan to offer preconfigured binary images of Snappy Ubuntu Core 16 for various devices, including the Raspberry Pi 2 i DragonBoard 410C, And will be available for both 32-bit (i386) and 64-bit (amd64). On the other hand, it looks like there will be more snaps of all kinds of apps available in the Snap Store for Ubuntu Desktop and Server.
