    I'll be upgrading on release day. I'll seed the Kubuntu 12.10 torrent for a few days as well.

    The office computer will remain LTS versions, as it has since Dapper. I'll burn a disk, and see how my laptop (T43) likes the new Xubuntu release. If it does, I'll probably keep it, if not, I'll reinstall 12.04, and leave well enough alone.

    I'll check the initial reviews. If any speed improvements, I hit the button immediately. I'm OCD about speed. And battery life.

    But I do love my good 'ol stable LTS.

    By the way, what does LTS stand for?

    long term support and as the name implies you get support for longer than a normal release

    LTS is also supposedly more stable

    if you really cared about stability there are more stable distros but honestly most distros are plenty stable right now. i say go for the upgrade because you will always wonder what it's like until you eventually do. or at least that's how i used to be.

    NonLTS support is for 18 months.

    LTS support is for 5 years. (Starting with 12.04. Before that it was 5 years for the server and 3 years for the desktop.)

    been using xubuntu 12.10 beta for about a week almost full time now
    issues i have:
    file roller is not reliable (extract here from right clicking file makes it crash)
    monitor will not turn off
    backlight will not auto dim
    separate X displays on multiple monitors does not work (nvidia drivers)
    unable to change mouse pointer icon (i changed it in 4 places and it still switches back and forth)

    still using 10.04 on my desktop, have not finished switching to12.04 on it
