elementary OS 6 Will Be Based on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (Focal Fossa)

In a recent blog post, elementary co-founder Cassidy James Blaede talks about an “intense and record-breaking” 2019 and also highlights some of the major goals for 2020 while also revealing the fact that work on the next major release, elementary OS 6, is on the way and it will be based on the upcoming Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (Focal Fossa) operating system. Until elementary OS 6 will hit the streets, something no one knows at this time, the team plans to make various improvements to their beloved GNU/Linux distribution, which won’t necessary arrive in the next major release, but quite possible in a elementary OS 5 point release.
