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?
I been enjoying Ubuntu 12.10 so much I made it my only operation system. I am going to be building another pc AMD computer and going to install 12.10 on it as well.
Whoever came up with the phrase "There is no such thing as a stupid question" obviously never had the internet.
NonLTS support is for 18 months.long term support and as the name implies you get support for longer than a normal release
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
