Ubuntu GNOME and Ubuntu Flavors Unite Into a Single Distro for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

We reported earlier this week that Ubuntu GNOME is becoming the main Ubuntu flavor, but, today, the Ubuntu GNOME team also confirmed the change in the release announcement for Ubuntu GNOME 17.04 (Zesty Zapus), saying that their project will no longer be a separate flavor starting with the release of Ubuntu 18.04 LTS next year. Yes, you’re reading it right, if you install or already use the Ubuntu GNOME flavor on your personal computer, be it either Ubuntu GNOME 16.04 LTS next year on April you’ll have no choice but to upgrade to Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, as there won’t be a separate Ubuntu GNOME edition. And, if you’ll be using the Ubuntu GNOME 17.04 release announced today, you’ll be upgraded to Ubuntu 17.10 later this year.
