KDE neon Systems Based on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Have Reached End of Life, Upgrade Now

With the rebase of KDE neon on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver) on September 2018, the development team have decided it’s time to put the old series based on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) to rest once and for all as most users already managed to upgrade their systems to the new KDE neon series based on Canonical’s latest Ubuntu LTS release. Unlike Ubuntu, the KDE neon distribution follows a rolling release mode where the user installs the operating system once and receives updates forever, where until something goes wrong and a reinstall is required, for which new KDE neon snapshots are refreshed and available to download from time to time.
