As you might be already knowing, this Ubuntu release is the first ISO image to ship without Unity desktop environment after many years. Now, Ubuntu’s default and flagship edition is based on GNOME desktop environment with few tweaks made by Canonical’s desktop team.
Before going ahead and attempting to download the latest release, please note that 17.10 is only available for 64-bit desktops. Flavors other than flagship GNOME edition are available in 32-bit editions as well.
A major change in this release comes in the form of Wayland, which is now the default display server. One shouldn’t expect any hiccups due to this change. However, in case you face any issue, there is a default Ubuntu on Xorg session included in this release.
