The Unity desktop environment that was in use since 2011 is replaced by the original Gnome what was used for 2011, partly because the development of the mobile versions of Ubuntu for Phones are immediately stopped. In April 2017, Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth announced that Ubuntu 18.04 LTS will simply have the Gnome desktop and not its own Unity desktop. The new release contains the Linux kernel 4.13 Ubuntu 17.10 is free to download from October 19, 2017. Existing Ubuntu users can upgrade as they are used to. A new LTS version of Ubuntu - with 5 years of support - will be released in April 2018.
