Those working on the KDE Neon initiative for making it more easy to consume the bleeding-edge KDE software have today announced their User Edition Tech Preview.

The KDE Neon User Edition Tech Preview is based on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS but with the very newest KDE software pieces. This Ubuntu 16.04 LTS based operating system ships with KDE Plasma 5.6.3, Qt 5.5, and other updated KDE code while still basing it on Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus. Today's release is just a tech preview with many early problems like no UEFI support, some installer issues, and other imperfections.
