Can't wait for this!

Just built a new computer for myself for work with a 9700k and z390 chipset motherboard.

Hopefully it works straight out of the box for 4.4 :D

If not someone will think of some workarounds.

I'm running it already and it's been flawless so far.  My only issue - and I don't believe it's related to 4.4, has been that Thunderbird quit checking mail.  Easily fixed by switching to Seamonkey, my favorite anyway.  Well done, @Jerry and thank you!

Just a heads up for those that have installed the RC1 on real hardware, there are no changes to the Final since no major bugs have been reported. So if you have the RC1 installed, keep on keeping on :) This information will be in the Final release announcement. Proof of just how good our RC's are.

Since we are close to 1 April, I figured I'd touch base and mention 4.4 RC1 is still working great with no issues on my system. Many hours of use and several updates. Looking forward to the release this weekend, with a laptop ready for install.

My kinda-sorta "review" of Linux Lite on Diaspora (my alternative to Facebook) is at https://kingdompod.com/posts/b18811b025790137402c723c91a982a6

Very nice, very nimble!

 Test results for 4.4 RC1. Used dd to write to a usb stick. Live boot was quite long, almost 2 minutes. Everything worked running live, so I proceeded with the first of two installs.


I had a testing desktop system running LL 4.2 using a separate home partition. Using ďSomething elseĒ I installed 4.4 on two existing partitions, formatting root and not formatting home. Grub was installed to sda. This was a dual boot install with Debian testing running Plasma. Install was fine with my settings and home data retained as expected. Grub looked good. After about an hour of testing, everything I tried looked good.


Second install was to the same two partitions, with both getting formatted for a clean install.



Ran updates, completed some basic setting adjustments and rebooted. Start up was 36 seconds.


Very happy with the default look but made a bunch of changes to play with the settings and all worked well. Installed some apps from Synaptic and Lite Software. No problems. Installed Etcher from direct download. No problem.



Transferred a bunch of files of various types form a data usb stick. All went quickly and the files opened with expected default programs.


For the past three days, Iíve set 4.4 up as I would my production system, used it for several hours and all is working flawlessly. Iíll work it some more but as far as Iím concerned itís ready to go.


The test system is a home build desktop with an AMD A10-5800K, 8GB RAM, a hybrid hdd, and uses Ethernet for Internet connection. Test printer is an HP Officejet All-in-one.

 
Nice work Jerry! 4.4 will be a very good release!

It's faster than before!  That's very good.  I worry about all those PPAs in it though... dangerous for newbies, isn't it?
I'm not a PPA fan either. What we do have, is thoughtfully selected.

The interface says it all. Looks like grandma designed it (respectfully) and that's exactly what I always look for, dumbed down basic.
