Things I do after installing Ubuntu 17.04

Ubuntu 17.04 – Ubuntu 17.04 has been released few months back. But I just got time to install it on my Virtualbox. I mainly use Ubuntu 16.04 for my daily blogging tasks. And to be honest, I am not planning to upgrade my Ubuntu 16.04 to this Ubuntu 17.04. I prefer to use the LTS version only for my workstations. OK, but anyway now my Ubuntu 17.04 is up and running with pretty standard looks. I have some suggestions or some rituals I do after installing Ubuntu, including this Ubuntu 17.04.
