Well, that didn't take long, and we're now able to install the recently released Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak) operating system on our Raspberry Pi 2 and Raspberry Pi 3 single-board computers, thanks to the new RaspEX Build 161019 project, which also borrows various components from the Debian GNU/Linux 8.6 "Jessie" distribution and Linaro (open source software for ARM SoCs). Another cool new feature of the RaspEX Build 161019 release is the addition of the lightweight LXDE desktop environment, which is perfect for those tiny Raspberry Pi computers. Users will also find Samba and VNC4Server if they want to connect to their Windows computers on their home network, as well as apps like Midori web browser, SMTube YouTube video browser and player.
