Canonical has now announced that a new version of its popular Ubuntu operating system is out and available for download. The new version is called Ubuntu 17.10 Artful Aardvark and comes with a new default desktop manager, display server, and a whole bunch of more modest updates.
The biggest changes are lack of support for 32-bit processors and no Unity desktop environment, which is now replaced with GNOME. The GNOME desktop environment will now be Ubuntu's default and flagship environment. The new Ubuntu release is available for download from this link.
