Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver) – A powerful platform for a multitude of applications

The heavily revamped Ubuntu comes with GNOME shell instead of unity, Snap apps and a software center where (finally!) we don’t have to search the web for an updated version of any software! The team at Canonical has added many features which have made the platform easy to use and powerful for programming. Canonical’s LivePatch can be used for critical updates without the need for rebooting the computer. The only issue I found was the boot issue with my laptop post-installation. The following fix can be applied to solve the problem.
