Entroware, a UK-based hardware manufacturer known for offering desktops, laptops, and servers with the popular Ubuntu operating system pre-installed, announced that they are now shipping their products with the latest Ubuntu release.
If you buy a laptop or desktop system from Entroware, you’ll now be able to select the recently released Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak) or Ubuntu MATE 16.10 operating systems, besides the long-term supported Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) and Ubuntu MATE 16.04 LTS, which are still available as an option.
Canonical unveiled the final release of the Ubuntu 16.10 operating system after six months of hard work, and the biggest new features offered in this release are the latest Linux 4.8 kernel, which adds great hardware improvements and updated drivers.
On the other hand, Ubuntu MATE 16.10 is almost a complete rework of the Ubuntu MATE 16.04 LTS release, shipping with the newest MATE 1.16 desktop environment built on the GTK+ 3 technologies, which means that it’s faster, uses less RAM, and offers a beautiful desktop experience.
