Canonical has been in the Linux world for more than a decade, launching the first Ubuntu version in late October 2004. This Linux flavor is now available in almost 60 languages and gets a new release every six months. On the other hand, long-term support (LTS) releases do not come that often - there is a two-year gap between them, and each receives support and software updates for no less than five years.

According to the official press release by Canonical, Ubuntu 16.04 introduces the snap package format and LXD pure-container hypervisor with OpenStack Mitaka. The new long term support release also brings ZFS and CephFS support "for large-scale cloud storage," also marking "the first time that the platform is supported on mainframes, the world’s largest and most powerful Linux systems."

This new release will offer support for an impressive range of hardware platforms, from embedded ARM devices like the notorious RaspberryPi to standard 32-bit and 64-bit servers powered by AMD and Intel, as well as IBM Z, LinuxONE, and POWER8 mainframes.

We should hear more about the new Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and its features tomorrow, so stay tuned.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
