    Difference Between Ubuntu 12.04 and 12.10

    Title says it all. Is it worth upgrading? I've seen some people say it is a little slower.

    It'll be installed on a low end Sony VAIO VGN-FZ430E
    Intel Core 2 Duo @1.83GHz

    Hello and Welcome

    I don't upgrade but do install the latest releases (my choice). If you are happy with your current setup don't bother because 12.04 will be supported much longer than 12.10. Each new release comes with the latest Ubuntu modified kernel so that is a reason some upgrade or change releases. The newer kernel sometimes includes features people need.

    Although upgrades work fine for some users you don't have to look very hard on the forum to find numerous problems associated with them. Old familiar programs often disappear with each new version. If you have 12.04 PPAS chances are many won't work in 12.10 and the same is true for themes because 12.10 uses Gnome 3.6 and 12.04 uses 3.4.

    Thanks for your input. I ended up installing without a hitch, and everything works. I don't see any major difference in speed, it's about the same. But, as long as I'm running Ubuntu, I'm happy!

    Thank you , Frogs Hair for the advice, this helps me when considering the myriad of
    choices available, also regarding the updates, yes many issues in this forum on problems
    with updates, I did update 12.04 to 12.04.1, no problems, but no benefits that are
    noticeable either.
