      Can you upgrade easily from beta to release? I have some servers I could toss this on, but don't feel like re-doing them again at official launch.

        144Hz wishes Linux distributions different to Fedora... to be killed:
        - homed is going to kill off more distributionism. Couldn’t be better. Go get’em lennarD

          I'm with 144 Hz on this one - snaps centralization (there is no possibility to change the URL of the upstream repository without recompiling the software and it explicitly doesn't support working with multiple repositories) makes it hostile to the open-source, federated approach. It's more similar to the Windows Store and Google Play store than it is to Flatpak

            Yes, I totally agree with you. I would prefer if Ubuntu officially support and use flatpak instead of snap.

              Nth_man Congratulations you missed the point. Fedora also comes with loads of distributionism.

                You will just get the release with normal updates and won't automatically enter the next beta. So installing it now or after release is exactly the same after the release is done.

                  And Ubuntu should enable Wayland by default.

                    R41N3R Business decisions made that impossible on 20.04 but some of the Canonical devs are actively testing Wayland now.

                    I guess they want the Wayland experience to be good on 20.04 as well.
