Black Lab Linux 8 Beta 3 Is Out with Full EFI Support, Based on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

Black Lab Linux 8 “Onyx” Beta 3 is here approximately three weeks after the second Beta pre-release and it comes with a major change. It is no longer based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr), as the development team decided to switch base and move to the next Ubuntu LTS version, namely Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus). Backed by three popular desktop environments, namely GNOME 3, MATE, and LXDE, Black Lab Linux 8 Beta 3 is powered by the long-term supported Linux 4.4 kernel packages of Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and comes with up-to-date components and applications, including the LibreOffice 5.2 office suite and Mozilla Firefox 49.0 web browser.
