19.04 ‘Disco Dingo’ now available as optimised desktop image for Hyper-V

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.
