As we all know, Ubuntu 20.10 was released a few days ago and it has the most improved feature. In short, it is the first Ubuntu to include desktop images for Raspberry Pi4. Yes, you read it right. You can now download the Ubuntu 20.10 desktop and run it on Raspberry Pi models. But there is one caveat. You can only use it if your Raspberry Pi models have 4GB of RAM or more.
Both desktop images and servers support module 4 of the new Raspberry Pi computer. However, we have another limitation. It is possible that 20.10 images are started with the previous models. And the new desktop pictures are only made for the arm64 architecture. Only the Pi 4 variant with 4 GB or 8 GB RAM is supported.
The old version of Linux kernel 5.4 was updated and the latest Ubuntu 20.10 delivered the new Linux kernel 5.8. And this is known as the greatest release ever on Linux. It has 17,595 commits, which is the most accomplished by the company to date.
One thing is clear, however: Linux 5.8 has brought us many new updates. It also has some new features and hardware support. Intel Tiger Lake Thunderbolt support, Thunderbolt support for Intel Tiger Lake and non-x86 systems, Kernel Event Notification Mechanism, initial support for booting POWER10 processors, and expanded IPv6 support for Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) are some examples of these new amazing features about it.
My most popular of these features is GNOME 3.38. This feature offers a restart option in the system menu. Take advantage of it and find out about all the new functions for yourself.
