Error-ridden and very disappointing.

  • Ubuntu 20.10 is not out yet.
  • Ubuntu has supported RasPi 2 & 3 on the desktop for years. I remember upgrading my desktop install to Ubuntu 16.04.
  • Full RasPi 4 support was in 20.04 and I've been running it since April.

Hello, thanks for taking the time to comment.

  • Ubuntu 20.10 is out, it was released a few hours ago. https://ubuntu.com/raspberry-pi
  • This is the first Ubuntu release to be released as a desktop OS for the Raspberry Pi.
  • Ubuntu has supported the Raspberry Pi for many years, and in the past it has used server images with the desktop installed on top. Not ideal but it worked. I've used it in the past to install Ubuntu on Raspberry Pi 2 and 3. I even remember using Ubuntu Core to build a basic desktop machine.
  • Martin Wimpress from Canonical created Desktopify as a means to create an automated and well supported means to convert server images for desktop use.
