This year is very significant, as with Ubuntu 17.10, GNOME is replacing

Unity as the default desktop environment.


														
							

Today, Beta 2 of Ubuntu Linux 17.10, code-named “Artful Aardvark,” becomes available to download. This second beta is the final beta as well, which signals that the operating system is almost ready for primetime. “The Ubuntu team is pleased to announce the final beta release of the Ubuntu 17.10 Desktop, Server, and Cloud products. Codenamed ‘Artful Aardvark,’ says Łukasz Zemczak, Software Engineer, Canonical.

Ubuntu 17.10 uses Linux kernel 4.13, LibreOffice 5.4, and Wayland as the display server. This is also the first version of the Ubuntu desktop operating system to be 64-bit only — Canonical has dropped 32-bit development going forward. This is a smart move, as 32-bit-only hardware is largely obsolete at this point. A decent 64-bit machine can be had for a few hundred dollars — now is the time to upgrade, folks.

Ubuntu with GNOME is not a part of the beta 2 release, but the following desktop environments are. Please use the below links to download your desired ISO.
