Hey everyone I have two questions for those running 16.04 daily builds.

1. What has been your experience so far in terms of stability?

2. I've seen a few images that show Ubuntu with the gtk headerbars. Is 16.04 going to have them or traditional title bars?

Unprivileged containers run the same way as privileged ones, simply without using sudo or root access. This is more secure as you can't be root on the host even if you managed to escape container. #linux #lxc #ubuntu

Think I'm going to save up to build this (see link), I want to set up as a RAID 5, the mother board says it supports RAID. Does that mean I can set up my drives in the bios, before the OS has to deal with it? Or do I have to make sure the OS supports RAID and configure it during install? Or both?

You can do everything in Ubuntu server as you can in Desktop. The differences are only really in the installer and default packages. Mdadm tools can be installed in Ubuntu desktop, just like Ubuntu server.

Anyone tried the new +OpenShot Video Editor 2.0 beta?

It's really buggy on my 16.04 desktop. Freezes, crashes and causes the entire UI to lag. Seems to be a Pulseaudio issue. 
The first public beta of OpenShot to be made in over three years is now available for testing.

gnuplot on Ubuntu 15.10 has not wxt terminal. This took away some of my precious time.... Compiling gnuplot 5.0.2 on Ubuntu 15.10 with wxt+qt terminals needs some tweaks.

Thinking of doing an updated version of this post (since many of the apps mentioned in this version from 2013 are either no longer available or no longer the 'best' choices). 

Any app, game or utility ideas you think should be mentioned? I want to keep such a post concise, so won't be listing every available option/alternative. 

Let me know :) 
You've installed Ubuntu, followed our helpful '10 Things to Do' guide, and now you want some top-notch apps to use on it. Well, read on!
