  1. Thats a shame, weirdly 15.10 has been the most stable Ubuntu for me since I switched to Linux two years ago. Not even Ubuntu 14.04 were this stable.

    In the other hand I want to test the OOB ZFS support in 16.04. But I’m usure if is posible to upgrade from a LTS to the next non-LTS without a clean install. Since I like to be always up to date.

    Do you recommend me to upgrade to 16.04 or wait patiently for 16.10 in october?

    • It’s able to upgrade from LTS to non-LTS by setting: Software & Updates -> Updates -> Choose “For any new version” as value for Notify me of a new Ubuntu version.

      You may choose to upgrade to Ubuntu 16.04.1, the first point release scheduled to be released on July 21st. It will be a little more stable.
