Major new features for this release include a significant update to the experience for finding and installing applications, as well as major facelifts for the Videos and gedit applications. Those who have high resolution displays will benefit from greater support, and users will experience better start up times as well as more efficient resource usage. They will also be able to quickly organize their applications with the new application folders feature.

I remember a time when GNOME and KDE releases were big deals here. Feels like eons ago, a distant memory from an irrelevant past.

I do too. Not to rehash ancient history, but KDE 4 had some growing pains. Each release it gets more stable & faster ( for me, so far up until KDE platform 4.12 where I'm at now).

Same deal with Gnome3. I've actually switched to Gnome3 at home. It seems to be better by default for my home workflow. But at work, KDE can't be beat so far...

Plus there is the whole transition to wayland that will happen with in the next year or two. Will I notice a difference? I don't know exactly, but I think it will provide a foundation for future innovation that wouldn't have been as easy as with ye olden X11. I'm kind of excited to see where it goes.

I think phones are actually maturing faster. There is nothing on the horizon that looks like a game changer there, with the real change coming with wearables and chrome cast. I think.
