Fresh Look At Lubuntu 16.10 Yakkety Yak

Lubuntu is a fast, lightweight and energy-saving variant of Ubuntu using the LXDE (Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment) desktop. It is intended to have low-resource system requirements and is designed primarily for netbooks, mobile devices and older PCs.

The second alpha of the Yakkety Yak (to become 16.10) has now been
released!

This milestone features images for Lubuntu, Ubuntu MATE and Ubuntu Kylin.

Pre-releases of the Yakkety Yak are *not* encouraged for anyone needing
a stable system or anyone who is not comfortable running into
occasional, even frequent breakage. They are, however, recommended for
Ubuntu flavor developers and those who want to help in testing,
reporting and fixing bugs as we work towards getting this release ready.

Alpha 2 includes a number of software updates that are ready for wider
testing. This is still an early set of images, so you should expect some
bugs.

While these Alpha 2 images have been tested and work, except as noted in
the release notes, Ubuntu developers are continuing to improve the
Yakkety Yak. In particular, once newer daily images are available,
system installation bugs identified in the Alpha 2 installer should be
verified against the current daily image before being reported in
Launchpad. Using an obsolete image to re-report bugs that have already
been fixed wastes your time and the time of developers who are busy
trying to make 16.10 the best Ubuntu release yet. Always ensure your
system is up to date before reporting bugs.

Steam OS 2.68 ‘Brewmaster’ Beta

SteamOS 2.68 Brewmaster Beta comes only three weeks after the previous Beta version 2.67, which added fixes to the built-in PulseAudio sound server and the GRUB bootloader.

This update follows Debian 8.4 ‘Jesse’ update and will be rebased upon it.

SteamOS now brings a new version of the APT package manager.

The announcement for 2.68:

A handful of minor updates to sync with the Debian 8.4 release[www.debian.org] and the usual collection of security fixes.

Remember to keep in mind that this is a Beta version of SteamOS and not the official release.
