    Like a few people stated here, I feel the same. I used love looking forward to new releases of Ubuntu, count the days, test every stage of milestone (in virtual environment and sometimes on bare metal), but now I am more or less okay cool. I will wait for the update to hit my system(s), as I am too busy with other stuff these days. I am very happy for this one though a solid release and I love using both Kubuntu and Ubuntu. Both are top notch releases.

    It used to be a surprise - aquarium, matrix (live wallpaper). Today this is a real challenge. I lobby for "live wall" & I'll do it until such solution is created

    If you're a JavaScript developer and install the npm package then it pulls in the node.js dependency which in turns pulls in node-gyp which depends on Python 2.

    Indeed - except for the fact that Ubuntu 18.04 felt like a huge setback, when they suddenly changed to a slow and buggy Gnome. However it has really improved in the last couple of releases, and 20.04 feels very solid, responsive and polished. Even Wayland seems to just work! (Although still non-default).

    So now I will perhaps go back to not counting the months till a new release

    Btw I use Archâ„¢

    Gonna give this Ubuntu a try in a VM though. Maybe it's QEMU package finally now has SDL and Virgil support built-in?

    Yeah, i noticed this on myself as well, when i was in my 20s i was so eager for new tech and software, no i don't give a fsck. We just don't get excited anymore, due to experience.

    It is only alive with the default/standard desktop. All of the other flavors use Desktops of Death. That's because Ubuntu is catering to the zombie user base. Don't be fooled by this evil!

    No I think we've just gotten used to solid releases. Ideally the OS should just be out of your way so you can get your work/play done.

    This 20.04 LTS release will make a lot of people happy. Thanks to all the devs for their hard work.
