Will Cooke of Canonical shared this morning that they have got the first Snappy build of Ubuntu Desktop Next built for i386.

While there's been Snappy Ubuntu Core for experimenting with the next-generation Ubuntu package manager, they're working to get Ubuntu Snappy on the Desktop-Next stack to eventually replace .deb packages.

Canonical developers have been working to get a snappy version of Ubuntu Desktop-Next for 15.10 and today they've achieved partial success. Tjere os a Snappy build for i386, but they need to figure out why their x86_64 build didn't work. Additionally, the build isn't yet an installable image.
