Ubuntu to Run Much Faster in Virtual Machines, as Well as When Using It Remotely

Ubuntu 16.10 will be officially released on October 13, 2016, but until then we will be able to get an early taste of its new features by downloading the Final Beta ISO images, which for some of the opt-in flavors is called Beta 2. However, for Ubuntu itself, this will be the first and only Beta release. We’ve already told you that Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak) is now officially powered by Linux kernel 4.8, as well as that it already received some of the packages from the recently released GNOME 3.22 Stack, and today Will Cooke informs us that Canonical has been working hard to improve the low graphics mode of the Unity 7 user interface.
