At this stage of development Quantal has greatly stablized and now may be a good a time as any. It is rock-solid Ubuntu at it's best.
Agreed, for me a very good release. No major problems noted while I've been running Ubuntu over the last couple of weeks. I've reported or confirmed a couple of bugs but nothing serious enough to stop me using 12.10.

I'm still using my Kubuntu installation dating from early June, i.e. Alpha 1. But then recent Kubuntu development cycles are always like this, at least that's been my experience.
Edit: Lubuntu on my netbook has behaved itself too.
