Ubuntu 21.04 Hirsute Hippo by Sylvia Ritter


Every year, at such a time, the concept artist Sylvia Ritter releases a work of art inspired by the next big release of the Ubuntu distribution.

This time the artwork is about the upcoming Ubuntu 21.04.

Meet Sylvia Ritter's Hirsute Hippo, created with Krita open-source digital painting software.

The project is inspired by the Ubuntu 21.04 codename "Hirsute Hippo" and I believe it shows a hippopotamus mom with her baby.

Undoubtedly it is impressive and this time the project is in a format suitable for your mobile phones and tablets, as the PinePhone has become a very popular device among Linux fans.

You can download it from the artist's DeviantArt page.

Ubuntu 21.04 will be released at the end of (22) April 2021, and promises to be a very bold release as it changes to Wayland session by default on the Ubuntu desktop.

Other notable features of the upcoming Ubuntu 21.04 release include the default GNOME 3.38 UI for the Ubuntu Desktop version, support for the Linux 5.10 LTS kernel series (or Linux 5.11 if you're lucky), more new packages, and possibly many optimizations for faster startup and packet management.

Sylvia Ritter is known for her amazing works and has created works of art for all Ubuntu releases, which you can see her page on DeviantArt or to its official website.
