This is the reliable or primary model of Ubuntu’s sixteen.04 distro. Ubuntu’s grasp Xenial Xerus receives powered on the surface via their own improvement, the Unity desktop, and comes with a long-time period guide of five years.

Unity gives a new work flow and has no longer a start-menu or a task switcher. If you need these, we recommend our Ubuntu 16.04 photograph with MATE and VMware Tools. The MATE laptop classic gives the conventional experience, but has simplest 3 years of Ubuntu guide, which remains more than the standard two years of their intermediate variations.

MATE is also faster than Ubuntu Unity. So, remember to set the processor number of this Unity-based VM to the physical maximum and reserve enough memory for it.

On the other hand, we have tweaked the Xenial Xerus to run faster, for instance with the compiz settings manager. Is a Xerus is clumsy dinosaur? No, it is the opposite, a ground squirrel. Our virtualized Xerus seems to oscillate between both!

We also made the download a tad lighter and removed the two largest preinstalled applications. But you can reinstall them easily with the package manager Synaptic or apt-get. Even the Ubuntu Software Center would do it. The large community repositories, those with the 40000+ packages, are already enabled.

Libreoffice 296MB
Thunderbird 94MB

Alternative newer Ubuntu Images:

  • Lubuntu 18.04 LTS is our speedy, compact, and convenient Ubuntu LTS image. Hierarchical start menu and task switcher meet a full set of light applications. All that comes with VMware Tools that seem to have installed best into this Lubuntu VM.
  • Xubuntu 18.04 LTS is similar to the classic Gnome 2.0. Like Lubuntu is has start menus and a task switcher, but it also has different looks that mimic Windows, Mac, and also Unity. Definitely worth a try.

Apps included in this Ubuntu 16.04 LTS VMware image: Firefox, Synaptic, compiler chain, and some more tools. VMware Tools are also installed.
