Was running Ubuntu 17.10 on my desktop - upgraded today to 18.04. Feels quite a bit more snappy but other than that no change.
For those running 17.10 you'll note there is no upgrade notification just yet - you can however force an upgrade:
sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt dist-upgrade
sudo apt install update-manager-core
sudo do-release-upgrade (Note, if this doesn't work, you're running 17.10 (or 16.04) and it is saying "No release available" you can force it with the -d (for development) option.)
And for good measure - here is a screenshot of my Ubuntu installation complete with a Taylor Swift wallpaper. I do run Linux full-time on my desktop machine and rarely boot into Windows.
