    4.15 is going to be 'the' kernel for mesa/opensource GPU drivers by the sound of it.

    Ubuntu 18.04 should play nicely with opensource drivers 'out the box'

    If only Nvidia would join the party...

      Absolutely.
      4.15 would have been an appropriate LTS kernel _IF_ desktops would be considered today.
      But Debian/Ubuntu/Mint will live with it - and they own the desktop by a reason.
      Either Ubuntu will change its kernel target and use 4.15+ or conservatively stay with 4.14 LTS _but_
      backport all the graphics changes from AMD and Intel (I am pretty sure help is available).
      Same procedure as every LTS cycle.
      If XFCE is not mixed like in the chaos day of Trusty and X.org will ship with graphics stack reworked
      on Ubuntu that will be a REAL GREAT release - with or without Wayland - I don't mind.
      nVidia - what's that?
