"I want to figure out a way to not be stupid with money, then make a
whole bunch of it, then I want to move to Outer Mongolia. I want to
milk a yak. Maybe I'll just settle for a cow."

The first alpha of the Yakkety Yak (to become 16.10) has now been

This milestone features images for Lubuntu, Ubuntu MATE and Ubuntu

Pre-releases of the Yakkety Yak are *not* encouraged for anyone needing
a stable system or anyone who is not comfortable running into
occasional, even frequent breakage. They are, however, recommended for
Ubuntu flavor developers and those who want to help in testing,
reporting and fixing bugs as we work towards getting this release

Alpha 1 includes a number of software updates that are ready for wider
testing. This is quite an early set of images, so you should expect
some bugs.

While these Alpha 1 images have been tested and work, except as noted
in the release notes, Ubuntu developers are continuing to improve the
Yakkety Yak. In particular, once newer daily images are available,
system installation bugs identified in the Alpha 1 installer should be
verified against the current daily image before being reported in
Launchpad. Using an obsolete image to re-report bugs that have already
been fixed wastes your time and the time of developers who are busy
trying to make 16.10 the best Ubuntu release yet. Always ensure your
system is up to date before reporting bugs.

  Lubuntu is a flavour of Ubuntu based on LXDE and focused on providing
  a very lightweight distribution.
