    That's interesting. I've just rolled back from 12.10 to 12.04 (separate /home dir) as 12.10 was simply too buggy on my particular system. I find 12.04 much less buggy.

    There are a few apps I use (such as Amaya, Qtractor, Rosegarden and Darktable) which are updated more frequently than the stable Ubuntu repos, but backports, PPAs or standalone debs give no problems.

    Doesnt matter, give it a few years and Ubuntu will have about 10 active users. Wont be upgrading my machine to any version of Ubuntu now, once I get bored enough I will switch to something else. Ubuntu sold out to Amazon and Gnome 3/Unity. Utter trash now, shame to say it but it's true

    Tis what I'm using also. Desktop using KDE and laptop using Fluxbox, and a custom Xsession that purely runs Minecraft to free up as many resources as possible.

    Same here. 14 Cinnamon is nice.

    I'm still surprised that Ubuntu didn't think that sending peoples searches to scAmazon wouldn't royally pee people off.

    Off topic, but I'd be interested in how this was done. Do you have a quick guide for a Linux newb?

    Ubuntu Not Switching to Rolling Release Model

    Ubuntu will not be switching to a ‘Rolling Release’ model anytime soon, despite recent reports to the contrary.

    But Ubuntu’s Jono Bacon has revealed that pieces are being put into place‘ to allow such a decision to be made at a later date.
    The good/bad news (depending on your viewpoint) is that Ubuntu is not switching to a Rolling Release model yet.

    In fact, Ubuntu Community Manager Jono Bacon goes as far as to say that ‘it would be a disaster’ should it happen right now!

    But he does concede that switching to it at some point in the future is ‘the right step forward for us [Ubuntu] to make.’

    “What we've done is identify all the work we need to do for 14.04… [and] to put together all the pieces we need, so that we can decide in at a later date’.
