    Re: Ubuntu 12.10 seems buggy...

    I will post here since this is the most suitable thread for such discussion. Anyone noticed that 12.10 became resource hungry with the latest updates? Alpha 2 was flying on my computer, but beta2 is not so fast. Since there was a ton of updates from Alpha to beta, can this be the problem?

    Regards.

    Re: Ubuntu 12.10 seems buggy...

    Just curious...i have ubuntu 12.10 beta 2 currently installed...i was thinking about doing a fresh re-install when it goes to "final" on the 18th...
    however:

    I was wondering, aside from just rolling into the final (as a result of all the updates that are coming in) will the update manager in 12.10 also give you the option of "upgrading" to the final release as well?

    And if you can do an upgrade...is it usually best to roll into it, do an upgrade, or a fresh re-install of the final?

    I just did a fresh install using the Oct 6 2012 daily live iso, I find that after a while, the install gets crufty, so I intend to do a fresh install of the released version. I found this fresh install to be much faster, than the Beta 1 install that I've upgraded over the past few weeks.

    I suspected it might be better to re-install...there has been so many updates even since i put on the beta 2...think i will likely want to re-install when the final gets released next week...

    For some unfortunate reason, Many Ubuntu upgrades in recent years, they turned up buggy.

    At least, I have learned my lesson (lol), wait a month or even two, after the official date of release, when (hopefully) the initial bugs are fix - then upgrade.

    In a month or two 12.10 should be just as stable as 12.04 is...so it's really more a matter of whether you want the new features of 12.10...i do, so i have been running beta 2 and plan to do a clean re-install upon final release...
    Many long time (and loyal) users of Ubuntu have been wondering as to the wisdom of "new release every 6 months".

    maybe it is best, change it to every 12 months. That is, finish the development in 6 -9 months. Run extensive Beta for the next months - then release the new upgrade.

    Another way to mitigate the bug issue is, to develope more elaborate and invasive GUI based dignostic tools which could help new users and other GUI (KDE & GNOME, etc) guys run these test and have a better chance of recovery.

    2. Where the heck is cube deformation in the Compiz plugins?

    I have had so few problems -- at least not ones that others have reported first -- that I feel a bit silly being on the U + 1 team.
    The cube deformation is no longer a default plugin; they're looking for developers interested in maintaining it.

    The cube is still available if you install the compiz-plugins package.

    If you are asking about a problem with your system, make sure to give details about your setup. OTHERWISE, NO ONE CAN HELP YOU.

    You're posting in the wrong place and to the wrong audience, Most of us here are ready and waiting to start testing the next version, as soon as one is released. If you don't like the 6 month release cycle, it would be better for you to stick with the LTS releases, and upgrade every two years.

    Keep in mind that the interim versions between LTS release are to test new features that will show up in the next LTS release. This method actually gives the developers four chances to get it right, or drop a feature completely before the final LTS release
