Ubuntu 14.04 final beta download: A much-needed upgrade for LTS users. 1 Video.

    Trusty Tahr is the first long-term support (LTS) build of buntu
    in two years and is thus contains a lot of exciting features
    that thousands (millions?) of Ubuntu 12.04 users can’t wait
    to get their hands on.


    So, what is new in Ubuntu 14.04?. There is finally the
    option for locally integrated menus (LIM) in an app’s title
    bar instead of forcing the app’s menu to appear at the top
    of the screen (enable it in the new Unity Control Center)
    There’s a new Unity lock screen.

    You now have the option of minimizing apps from the
    launcher (and launcher icons can be made much smaller, too).

    Windows are now completely borderless, rather than bounded
    by a one-pixel black line.

    The shift from Compiz to GTK3 means window corners
    are now antialiased — oh, and resizing windows in
    Ubuntu 14.04 now occurs in real time.

    Moving down the list of importance: Ubuntu 14.04 also
    improves support for high-resolution displays, TRIM is
    enabled by default for Intel and Samsung SSDs, Nvidia
    Optimus support is improved, and you can pump the
    system volume up above 100%.

    All of the default applications have been updated
    to their latest stable versions.
    (Firefox 28, LibreOffice 4.2.3, Nautilus 3.10.1, etc.)
    and it rocks Linux kernel 3.13.

    This video from WepUpd8 shows most of
    Ubuntu 14.04′s new features but ......

    Be sure to turn your sound
    down before pressing play !!!

    The sound of the guitars ... no good.

    Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr Final Beta - Quick Overview (Unity)

    " It's pretty and highly configurable to individual taste "

    Overall, Ubuntu 14.04 is a surprisingly
    pleasant operating system !!!.

    It feels very polished
    especially for a Linux distro.

    If you’ve been using 12.04 for the last
    couple of years, 14.04 will feel like a
    sizable step up.

    The question, though, is whether Canonical should
    even be putting much time into desktop builds
    of Ubuntu — the desktop PC is undoubtedly on
    its way out, and I’m not entirely sure what
    role Canonical can play on other form factors.

    It might be able to gain some traction on TVs
    but, I’m fairly certain that mobile has already
    been sewn up tight by Android (also a Linux distro)
    and iOS.

    .... I have two versions of Ubuntu on two PCs, the 12 and now the 14.
    One of the PCs is small, and I have version 12.

    I've never had problems doing anything with Libreoffice on both PCs
    At the moment I have both versions and are good.

    What if it happens, is that version 14 is thicker, use more processor ....
    not going in the small PC .... the rest is fine.

    I Use Ubuntu to browse the Internet, and do administrative stuff.

    For P2P downloads, watch TV or streaming radio channels and other
    things ... I use the modified Windows XP, with some fine tuning ...... LOL.

    Regards Kevin ....
