Canonical Reveals Ubuntu 14.04 DesktopTime certainly flies, don’t you think so? It has been half a dozen months already since the Saucy Salamander install rolled out. This time around, the folks over at Canonical is pushing out the most recent version of its popular Linux distro, calling it Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. Of course, like any other good Linux distro, it would need to be accompanied by a code name, and so we have it known as Trusty Tahr.

This will be part of its long term support series, and that translates to it being on the receiving end of support and security updates for up to five years instead of the standard nine months. For companies that use either on desktop machines and servers, this is definitely good news. Why is Trusty such a big deal for Canonical? Well, it basically allows the operating system to be ready to see action on touchscreen displays, high DPI screens and tablets. Up till now, Ubuntu has not properly scaled high resolution displays. Apart from that, Ubuntu 14.04 would mark the first stable version of Ubuntu for tablets, now how about that? Are you stoked yet? Those who are interested are able to download Ubuntu 14.04 for free, of course. [Press Release]
