Dear Team,
I'm about to configure a few laptops for Labdoo and wanted to know if I can use the latest LTS of lubuntu (16.04) or should I stick with 14?

Hi Rob,

it's hard to say. Which laptops are you working on? AMD GPUs? Old laptops might be a problem. E.g. Dell Latitude D510 only support 14.04, Dell Latitude D600 run with 16.04. Both are older.

Actually I install 16.04, if not booting correctly I install 14.04 afterwards.

Another remarks: the images for 14.04 were also updated and modify, so they became very likely the 16.04 image (update to LibreOffice 5.0; Windows 10 alike theme / GUI etc.). So even you decide or have to stay with 14.04 please take a look at the new 14.04 images. They will be uploaded during the next 4+ days. You will find in the change log file details when did what change

Hi Ralf,
thanks very much for your reply! Great that we can use the latest - I will try, and if it doesn't work I'll go back to 14.
I won't have time to wait for the new images unfortunately (leaving the country soon) but in the future I'll be sure to check.
Thanks again!
