    Phoronix: Ubuntu 18.04 LTS Enters Its Feature Freeze

    The Ubuntu 18.04 LTS "Bionic Beaver" is now under its feature freeze. This marks the period now by which Ubuntu developers should be focusing on bug fixes rather than new features...

    April can't come soon enough... I'm waiting for 18.04 to switch my production system over to Linux.

    I think I have most of the snags worked out, only Acrobat DC is iffy, since that's our only software without Linux alternatives. I hope I can make it run reliably in Wine.

      Hopefully we get a Gnome extension for Unity look and feel. (topmenu etc.)

            You need that for creating or reading PDFs? For reading, my Windows machines here use the tiny Sumara PDF, since the Adobe alternative is ridiculously large.

                  Libreoffice for writing. On Ubuntu some reader opens auto with pdf, no changes needed.

                    kernel freeze on 12 April . . . the Linux 4.15 kernel is powering this distribution
                    Ubuntu 18.04 LTS ships with Linux Kernel 4.16: Impossible, or merely unlikely?
