    Upgrading is more fun

    Xubuntu 12.04.1 LTS will stay for a while on my laptop.

    I'm playing with 12.10 beta 2 on a separate partition and I like it as it sees my Sony xperia phone.

    Upgrade, but maybe not immediately. I simply can't resist an upgrade of my applications to a newer version and KDE 4.9.x of course.

    Well, I upgraded to Quantal Quetzal prematurely, and it's actually a very nice distro. Not a whole lot of upgrades over 12.04 (that I can see anyway). Seems a little quicker, not a fan of the Amazon results in dash, but they introduced a new privacy menu that makes disabling such things easy. Also introduces the ability to control exactly what actions the OS tracks, and what it doesn't.

    Overall more of the same, but even in Beta 2 status seems fast and stable.

    You don't find Unity 6.6 to be much slower?

    12.10 is providing better performance on my netbook(s).
    The vga drivers are improved, better with HD.
    Unity in 12.04 has useful GDocs integration, and other nice touches.
    Switched everything.

    If I used Ubuntu. definitely 12.10 as it seems faster on my netbook. Unity does not work for me and my least favourite aspect is lack of customization and the inability to move the dock/launcher (even Windows and OS X allow this).

    Since I use Kubuntu though, 12.10 definitely makes sense as I need the lastest KDE versions available. And with KDE 4 in general, the higher the version, the better the performance. KDE 4.9.1 is extremely snappy on my netbook for me. The new features such as GTK 3 integration in Kubuntu are interesting.

    I may upgrade to Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit then. I don't use VM Ware Workstation 9.x 64 bit anymore as I don't have any guest virtual machines. I deleted Microsoft Windows 7 64 bit completely. I can switch to Oracle VM Virtualbox if I need to install a guest virtual machine in the future, but it won't be Windows 8 Pro 64 bit.

    I hope that Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit will be noticeably faster. I might upgrade to the latest Beta 2 version tonight. How do I do this?
