"adapt install [anything]" on your Ubuntu LTS server/desktop!


This presentation will discuss the problems associated with wanting a long term stable operating system, but in the world of rapidly moving DevOps and cloud utilities, needing access to newer packages, libraries, utilities, or services only built for newer versions of the OS. I've developed a new utility called "adapt". It's built on top of Debian's and Ubuntu's industry leading apt package manager, and combining it with LXC and LXD -- Linux containers. The result is a fantastic blend of running a stable, LTS host and having immediate access to anything and everything provided in newer releases of Ubuntu. This presentation will contain live demos of the tool in operation.
