“Disco Dingo” (aka Ubuntu 19.04) is out and available as of today (April 18, 2019). Here’s an update video:
If upgrading, be sure to:
disable all extra (non-ubuntu server) sources in “Software & Updates”
run the normal update process to ensure your existing install is up-to-date
be sure your laptop is either on AC power or at the least has a full 4 hour charge
Note: a 100% “Open Source” version of Visual Studio Code is now available. User tracking has been removed . . otherwise it’s identical.

One of our current club members asked me about this app a couple months ago. Here is some updated info on it in case it’s still needed:
Visual Studio Code . . . Update Article
Win10 updates article by Chris Hoffman. Nice to see Microsoft is bit by bit adding basic & established OS design features (such as giving users much more control over updates). It took change at the top . .

As RedHat is now officially a part of IBM, this will make SUSE the largest independent Linux OS company . . growing at 15% annually.
They still put out one of the best Linux distros . . . very polished and stable with additional gui tools for managing the desktop. I think I’ll install it again on my 500 Gig SanDisk portable SSD and demo it at a future meeting.
So, if curious, the big 3 Linux companies world wide are:
RedHat (IBM) (USA)
SUSE (Independent) (Germany)
Ubuntu (Canonical) (UK)
