Ubuntu 16.10 offers almost no changes to the installation process. But, in case you are new to Ubuntu, we'll walk you through upgrading or installing the latest release.

If you've installed Ubuntu in the past, you might notice that, earlier versions up to 12.04, Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak) does not fit on one CD. As from 12.10 onwards, developers also improved the installer, which now provides full encryption and Logical Volume Manager (LVM). The step in 13.10 that allowed access to or set up of an UbuntuOne account was removed in 14.04. Other than these updates, not much has changed with the Ubuntu installation process.

You can Install Ubuntu 16.10 on your computer or virtual machine in several ways. Although Ubuntu is geared toward novice Linux users, installing the system is different from a Windows installation. We'll explain your options and walk you through the steps.

What's New, Yakkety?

If you're running Ubuntu 16.04, you can update to version 16.10 directly. However, if you're upgrading from a version of Ubuntu earlier than 16.04, you will have to update in steps to 16.04 first and then to 16.10. If you decide to go with a clean install, try the Live version first to test the programs and get used to the Unity desktop. Then, you can load the distribution via the integrated installer on your computer. Regardless of what you decide, back up all your important files first so nothing gets lost in the process.
