Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver) Daily Builds Now Available to Download

Canonical CEO Mark Shuttleworth dubbed the upcoming Ubuntu 18.04 LTS operating system as the “Bionic Beaver,” but he didn’t reveal any of the plans for the next long-term supported release of one of the most popular free operating systems in the world, which Canonical will maintain for the next five years. Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver) is in early development stages, which means that the daily build ISO image is currently based on the stable branch, Ubuntu 17.10 (Artful Aardvark). As such, it’s running the Linux 4.13 kernel and uses the latest GNOME 3.26 desktop environment.
