The big question: will 15.04 be easier to recognize GPU's and run CUDA?


You can't judge a book by its cover, or a Linux by its interface. If you glance at Ubuntu 15.04, Vivid Vervet, you won't see a lot different from Ubuntu 14.10. Don't let first impressions fool you. Underneath that slick Unity 7.x interface, there's a lot of changes.

While the new Ubuntu isn't due out until April 23rd, the second beta is more than mature enough to see what we'll be getting in the Vivid Vervet. A vervet, for those of you who are wondering, is an East African monkey.

Based on my work with the beta over the last few days, here are the most important changes in Ubuntu 15.04. I've been using Ubuntu since the first version, 2004's Ubuntu 4.10. These days, I use it on desktops, servers, and cloud. In other words, I know Ubuntu.

Ubuntu 15.04 “Vivid Vervet” entered its Final Freeze period on 16 April 2015, which means the release is locked down and it is unlikely new features will be added before it launches on 23 April.

During Final Freeze, only critical bugs or exceptional circumstances will be considered for alteration.

A number of significant changes made it into Vivid, including a change in the initialisation system, a new version of the Linux kernel, upgrades to the Unity desktop manager, and updated applications.
