    Slightly disappointing that they went with Pulseaudio as default rather than Pipewise, but otherwise, looking forward to it.

      The moment they go PipeWire they will ship a broken setup by default.

      (I actually hope not)

        Well, maybe. But yes, I do understand the logic of not doing a potentially disruptive change in an LTS release. Better to do it in a non-LTS release and let it mature for a while before including it in a LTS. Still, the little child in me that wants the latest and shiniest toys is disappointed.

        OTOH I'm perfectly fine with the choice of the 5.15 LTS kernel. Once 22.10 rolls around there will be HWE kernels for those 22.04 LTS users that need newer kernels for driver support anyway.

          POWER supprot baseline --> support?

          Mesa 22.0 should also make it into Ubuntu 22.04 LTS --> it made it there already:

          esa-va-drivers/jammy,now 22.0.0-0ubuntu2 amd64
          mesa-va-drivers/jammy,now 22.0.0-0ubuntu2 i386
          mesa-vdpau-drivers/jammy,now 22.0.0-0ubuntu2 amd64
          mesa-vulkan-drivers/jammy,now 22.0.0-0ubuntu2 amd64
          mesa-vulkan-drivers/jammy,now 22.0.0-0ubuntu2 i386

            PipeWire works surprisingly good (definitely better than Wayland) for me. Dropped PulseAudio as a nightmare.

              They will still ship Gnome GTK 3 instead of GTK 4 applications, which is disappointing. Seems that Ubuntu is the new Debian by shipping old packages.

                  -march=power9 is absolutely brutal.

                  In my humble opinion, they maybe should have kept a special version for POWER8 and only compiled LTS releases for it in order to not absolutely shred the packaging servers.

                    is kubuntu in beta as well? does it allows for an effortless zfs installation (the same way ubuntu does)?
