Ubuntu 17.10 (Artful Aardvark) Is Now Available to Download

That’s right, the wait is finally over and you can now download Ubuntu 17.10 and install it on your personal computer, but only if it’s 64-bit capable because this is Ubuntu’s first-ever release to drop support for 32-bit installations, thus the rest of the official flavors are still offering 32-bit ISO images. Running the latest Linux 4.13 kernel, Ubuntu 17.10 is also the first release in more than seven years to drop the beloved Unity user interface in favor of the GNOME 3 desktop environment. The final image of Ubuntu 17.10 for desktops is using the recently released GNOME 3.26.1 packages.
