We’ve finally finished upgrading all of Scientific Linux 7 desktop PCs to Ubuntu! In true Forth Rail Bridge style, we’re now looking at upgrading our Ubuntu Linux Platform from version 20.04 (Focal Fossa) to 22.04 (Jammy Jellyfish). This post will show you how can try out bits of Jammy now.

We made a few minor changes to the suite of packages we provide on our Ubuntu desktop & compute hosts during the Christmas break.
