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.

These days, companies like Intel, Microsoft and Blackberry send me free hardware and offer free support to get apps and games ported to their devices and OS.

Can you IMAGINE this 15 years ago? How all-powerful they were? In the 90's Microsoft didn't give me the time of day. As late as 2009 Blackberry refused to send me even a native SDK. Look at them now.

The world moves on.
