Running Ubuntu as a virtual machine continues to be a popular way to use the desktop.
Back in September 2018 we announced the availability of optimised 18.04 LTS desktop images for Microsoft’s Hyper-V gallery bring a host of benefits including:
- Improved clipboard integration
- Dynamic desktop resizing
- Shared folders for easy host/guest file transfer
- Improved mouse experience, seamlessly moving between the host and guest desktops
Today we’re very happy to announce that a new 19.04 image joins the LTS version. This will help make life a bit easier for people working with Ubuntu desktop on Windows.
To build a virtual machine using the new image open the Hyper V Manager, click on Quick Create and choose the Ubuntu 19.04 option.
Our plan at this point is to provide the latest LTS and the most recent non-LTS release. That way you can choose between the known quantity of the LTS or the freshest release.
