Expected Changes In Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin

[ Thanks to An Anonymous Reader for

“Ubuntu will promote 64-bit images starting with Precise. This
means that when you go to Ubuntu.com and click to download Ubuntu,
the 64-bit image will be selected by default. You can of course
choose to download 32-bit images instead if you want to. Until now,
the 64-bit images weren’t promoted due to the lack of multiarch
support, but with this problem solved, there’s nothing blocking it
anymore.

“The Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin ISO size will increase to
750MB which means it won’t fit on a CD anymore so you’ll need
either an USB stick or DVD. There were issues the last cycle with
fitting everything on the CD so this is a welcome change for the
developers. The reason only 50MB were added is to make sure there’s
not too much stuff added on the ISO just because it’s
possible.”
