    Re: 12.10-What Will You Do?

    I nearly always change the distro name and do a safe-upgrade ...... part way through 12.04 to 12.10 ....

    This time it went well and will wait now till closer to release date to do another safe-upgrade.

    Few things I have noticed so far .... as the main thing I like to do using Ubuntu and its derivatives is 3d work ..... but this time wings3d has dependency problems and k3dsurf is no longer in the repos for download.

    Makehuman .... will not install either as its deb calls for Python2.6 ....... although Python2.7 is installed ..... this time it seems not to want to install.

    But as we know its not complete yet so things may change.

    I was thinking of not updating. However, if there is some good info on AMD & Ubuntu, I might give it a try.

    I am moving houses and such... so a lot going on. So I'll stick with my current desktop rather than have to mess around

    Re: 12.10-What Will You Do?

    I already have 12.10. Since I don't have much problems and it runs much better than 12.04 (lucky me) I will stay on 12.10 or make a clean install of the next releases.

    Plan to do an upgrade on the laptop. If all he77 breaks loose then will do a clean insall. The media center pc will remain on 12.04 till I decide if it is worth it to upgrade to or just wait.

    Re: 12.10-What Will You Do?

    I used to upgrade because I had a bunch of widgets, conky, panels and stuff... Sometimes I didn't feel like setting it up again.

    Now with Gnome 3 and Unity, I don't even feel the need for any of those.
    I think it's time for a clean install.

    Can't tell. I'm not planning to upgrade/install immediately after release. Mainly because I installed Precise just 2 weeks ago.

    I'll do a clean install, and upgrade to 13.04 as soon as the toolchain becomes available.

    I have a fallback install of 12.04.1 that will stay the same, just in case the development version becomes unusable like the current one did.

    Re: 12.10-What Will You Do?

    Tried out 12.10 xubuntu and Ubuntu this morning on virtualbox. Didn't like what I saw; xubuntu is starting to hide system functions in their menu just like gnome/ unity, and Ubuntu with the fade in at app launch....

    I will stick with 12.04 for the time being
