    I think they need to dedicate 13.04 to finding a new DE for default.

    They at least need to start working on getting rid of that old corroded Compiz. Compiz was awesome in its day, but then again, so was Windows 3.11.

    Heat issue? My ThinkPad never exceeds about 55 C... Most of the time it runs at 45....

    I think it's more about the design of the laptop itself, and how hard you push them.

    I've never had a laptop overheat on me either. And as much as I hate Precise Pangolin, it's never caused an issue with any of the desktops or laptops that I've used them in... I just don't like it because it's weird and looks a LOT like Apple.

    I've never had a heating problem either, but I mostly agree with the original poster. I think something like what Apple did with snow Leopard wouldn't be out of place. Rewrite things, leaving mostly the same functionality, but clean out the clutter and add consistency.

    Not to minimize what Canonical and other Ubuntu developers do, but if you've been around for a few years you tend to notice that Ubuntu release focuses on depend as much on what upstream developers are doing as what the Ubuntu project does.

    True. But to give them a little lift again, since Unity came out, they actually are part of upstream now.

    Not that that makes Unity any better of a DE.

    I doubt you will see any major changes in xfce. xfce 4.10 which will be in xubuntu 12.10 will also be in 13.04. Even if xfce 4.12 makes it to 13.04 there won't be much changes.
    I don't think xfce is gonna change much in the next couple of years interface wise.

    True, and of course there's Upstart as well; but my main point is, a "performance-focused" release would almost certainly involve mainly upstream, low-level work (kernel, libc, X11, GTK, Compiz, drivers, etc).

    A reason why I just ran with disabled effects all the time.
