Although the important day was yesterday, and Ubuntu 21.04 and all the official flavors are already available, not everything is said. The Canonical family, having discontinued Ubuntu GNOME, has eight components, but the number could rise to 12 in the future. Who is closer to achieving it is Ubuntu Cinnamon, but Ubuntu Unity, Ubuntu Web and the Deepin version also want to enter, which a few moments ago announced the launch of UbuntuDDE 21.04.
To be honest, I am happy using KDE, and my second option is GNOME because it seems a bit more stable to me. But I have ever tried this distribution and its design, together with the applications and some of its own functions, has made me imagine a future in which I will make the leap. I comment on this because, of what is to come, this is the system that I like the most and the only one that makes me think about things. In any case, this is an article that talks about a launch, and then you have the most outstanding news that have arrived together with UbuntuDDE 21.04 Hirsute Hippo.
Highlights of UbuntuDDE 21.04
- Linux 5.11.
- Based on Ubuntu 21.04, something that is logical but that they comment because they are not yet official flavor.
- Latest version of Deeping Desktop Environment (DDE) and Deepin packages.
- DDE Store as a software center.
- Firefox 87.
- LibreOffice 7.1.2 ~ rc2.
- Latest Ubuntu base packages.
- New wallpapers based on the Hirsute Hippo family pet.
- Calamares installer for easy installation.
- Various bug fixes.
The developers behind UbuntuDDE 21.04 recommend 4GB of RAM, 20GB of storage and at least a 2GHz processor to be able to move the operating system. They are not very demanding specifications, but it is worth mentioning.
UbuntuDDE 21.04 already has been officially launched, and the new ISO images can be downloaded from this link.
