Linux Ubuntu 19.10 to be installed for free on all computers

Linux users will already be aware of the release of the new version of Ubuntu, the 19.10, the middle release. The Ubuntu update policy, in fact, provides two updates a year, one that always ends with the version number .04, is the main update, the one that is supported for 5 years. The other, the one with version .10, which instead is a minor update, with 9 months support and will certainly require an update to the next version.
We currently have the Ubuntu 18.04 version as a long-support release, while the 19.10 version is now released, codenamed Eoan Ermine, as a minor update, which shows what to expect from the next LTS version of Ubuntu, scheduled for April 2020.
Companies that use Ubuntu 18.04 or 19.04 or earlier versions still supported have no real need to update their computer, while those who use Ubuntu on their home PC will have no contraindications in proceeding with the update to 19.10.
