Have used Ubuntu off n on since version 8.04 then 10.04.. Both still my favorites. But since my last desktop pretty much friend and my friend gave me his desktop he no longer uses. I've decided to give 12.10 a whirl. So far I like it, it's good. Unity I still think was way too slow with Compiz, etc. So I setup the gnome fallback So it works much speedier now I think.
And so far as my main pc it's working pretty good. I have a Tohisba netbook to but I have Mint installed on that as Ubuntu was way too laggy on it.
But anyways back to being in the land of Linux and forever done with Windows. Unless I happen to need photoshop for some critical editing or something. Then I'll just borrow my friend's laptop or run Virtualbox.
Will be looking forward to the Ubuntu phone as well at somepoint.
