The release of Ubuntu 17.10 marks (yet another) paradigm shift in the
development history of this Linux distribution. The home-grown Unity
desktop shell is gone; Ubuntu 17.10 offers a Ubuntu-flavored Gnome desktop
experience. This article lists my impressions with Ubuntu 17.10. It’s
really mostly negative impressions, but some things are better than with
Ubuntu 17.04. May it help others make the decision whether to upgrade to
17.10 or not.
