Ubuntu & Other Ubuntu Spins Look At Making Room To Grow
Written by Michael Larabel in Ubuntu on 2 May 2016 at 08:44 AM EDT. 13 Comments
With Ubuntu's install images continuing to be oversized with pushing 1.4GB on recent releases, Ubuntu developer Steve Langasek has raised the new limit for Ubuntu desktop images to 2GB. Other Ubuntu flavors are also following in this move.

Langasek has raised the size limit for images now to 2GB for being able to accomodate the current oversized images plus still having room to grow.

From the discussion about size limits, Ubuntu GNOME, Kubuntu, and Ubuntu MATE have also requested their space limits be raised to 2GB. Meanwhile, Ubuntu Studio wants to raise their allotted image size to that of a DVD/4GB.
