Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr Released

story imageUbuntu released version 14.04 LTS (codename "Trusty Tahr") today. This is a long-term support distribution, meaning Ubuntu will support it with security and bug fixes for 5 years as it slowly replaces Ubuntu 12.04 LTS that preceded it.Recent notable changes, such as the move to systemd or the Mir display server, are absent in this release. However, this release adds arm64 and ppc64el architectures. OpenStack and other "cloud" tools also received many updates.

Although critics often disparage the animal codename, the uniqueness of the word does aide Internet searches. For example, if you search for "Ubuntu Bluetooth" you may get outdated information from previous versions that is no longer relevant. However, adding "Precise Pangolin" or "Trusty Tahr" really helps narrow down the results.

I have to replace about 40 Windows XP desktops in a charter school with almost no technology budget. I updated two of the desktops to different versions of Linux Mint to see if they were similar enough to Windows that the teachers and students could use them.

Would Edubuntu be a better option, or is there another flavor of Ubuntu that would be an easy transition from Windows?
