    I've just installed it on my laptop and I am well impressed.
    It's much faster than 12.04.

    I upgraded to 12.10 twice and both times were a catastrophe; I had problems with just about everything. I used LMDE until I had an ISO of Ubuntu 13.04. Everything looked good from the live boot, so I took the plunge and installed.

    Considering this release is so new, it's looking very good.

    That video looks more like catch-up then new features. Window snap has been around ages and are they really showing off two toggle boxes for some sidebar buttons?

    12.10, for me at least, was the worst Ubuntu release. It was very buggy. I'd recommend you go to 13.04 unless you have a very good reason not to!

    I found that 12.04 was very stable, though.

    That tiled "no-desktop" look was introduced on the EEPC in 2007, a couple of years before win7 was released.
    I recall that ASUS had a lot of people return the eepc because people didn't like the look of the interface without a desktop.

    Yea but that had the added benifit of almost zero compatibility with things that people actually ran at the time.

    I used 12.10 and found performance poor. Installed 12.04 and it was better (but the KDE variant had crashes because of Jockey before I ran software update!).

    13.04...is it more then just UI updates? I'm not awfully excited at a lens tie-in to online stores or being able to read legal notices in an about dialogue!

    13.04 feels much slicker that 12.04. There are definitely some noticeable performance improvements. 12.10 was terrible, I had wireless failures after a kernel upgrade, random crashes, and so on, so I stuck with 12.04 which was very stable and fairly bug-free until I upgraded to 13.04.

    I don't like the Amazon lens thing, I switch this off from the Privacy toggle switch. I realise Ubuntu is heavily funded by Canonical, but I think this is the wrong approach to an income stream.

    My favourite distos, in order:

    1. Ubuntu - Unity simply works for me, I like it
    2. LMDE - slick Cinnamon interface on Debian testing.
    3. Sabayon - Brilliant distro with pre-compiled Gentoo packages
    4. SolusOS - very slick disto based on Debian stable (6/Squeeze) but with non-free binaries and codecs so it works out of the box. (Debian Stable with wireless - hooray!). The maintainers have upgraded a few packages, including Firefox, so it's not as stale as Debian Stable. If you are setting up an install-and-forget system for somebody, this is worth a look, and has a very nice, traditional interface.

    I agree - but their other income streams seem to be equally stupid. I called Canonical for a quote for a centrally managed desktop suite. No kidding they wanted £50 per device per year - that was their education pricing! This is essentially for the canonical version of Spacewalk. Go figure.

    Gaming support any better? That's the killer for me. But with SimCity and BF3 out of the picture and no real games to play I am not currently OS bound by an awful lot.
