Is Ubuntu 24.04 soon to be finalized?

Availaible April 25th 2024

It seems I spoke a little too quickly yesterday about this article,

Indeed, a few hours later, minor updates revealed new icons… Too late, my article was already written, and I apologize to the Ubuntu programmers through this new article. Let’s start with these two new icons.

Next to the Applications Center, you will see an icon labeled ‘Settings.’ Mac OS users won’t be too disoriented, as the functionality is quite similar to Apple’s operating system, with the key difference being that if you make a wrong move, you might easily end up with things not working as expected. Therefore, caution is advised, but it’s a significant improvement to be acknowledged, which will simplify many things for experts. The overall sound, which we found to be very low since the previous version, has been effectively boosted steadily from this ‘Settings’ icon. Almost infinite settings for all parts of the system are available here.

The strangest thing, but I think we’ll have to get used to it for a while, is that application management now goes through the ‘Discover’ icon. This is how you’ll install or remove applications for Ubuntu 24.04. It still needs some optimization because deletions can be quite slow, but it works perfectly. In any case, it’s preferable to go through ‘Discover,’ which lists all compatible and usable applications.

However, in rare cases, you may need to use the ‘Applications Center’ to install a program. This is the case, for example, if you want to use Zoom for Ubuntu, which you’ll need to download from the Zoom website here and follow the instructions on that Zoom page for installation.

From my point of view, you should expect to have both icons present on your system, ‘Applications Center’ and ‘Discover,’ while application developers offer a version of their application compatible with Discover. This version 24.04 is becoming more professional. It only lacks the ability to natively use Mac or Windows applications directly on Ubuntu to make everything perfect. If you really want to take advantage of Ubuntu 24.04 for office work, I recommend installing OnlyOffice, which is an excellent application, and removing LibreOffice. This will save you quite a bit of space on your hard drive. Additionally, it’s important to use Discover intelligently for removing applications because in Discover, when you click to view ‘Installed’ applications, they will be mixed with essential system functions. This again should be reserved for experienced users, otherwise, use the utmost caution. Even though Ubuntu 24.04 is still improvable, it has its strength and great stability.
