    For me it was the worst Ubuntu release ever. Unity with ATI was so unstable it couldn't even load. There was no 2D fallback. It actually made me explore other distro's.

    openSUSE being currently used as my main.

    With Unity, i had to install the fglrx updates (i did so ontop of fglrx that didnt work properly), to fix the issue of th desktop not loading. After which everything seemed fine.

    Code:
    apt-get install fglrx-updates fglrx-amdcccle-updates

    My worst experience since dapper drake.
    After an upgrade from 12/04 it wouldn't boot. For now I went back to precise, but will try Mint mate/cinnamon soon.

    12.10 is the first linux OS I've used and it installed quickly and works brilliantly, obviously some work was needed to get appropriate drivers and things set up but that was quick and easy. No problems whatsoever!

    Re: Quantal installation and upgrade experience

    I have to come back on a statement I made earlier on successful upgrade. The upgrade went well but last week I tried a clean install of Quantal and it didn't turn out so well, the proprietary Nvidia drivers simply didn't seem to work or get activated after rebooting and I was presented an empty desktop. Clean install of 12.04 has solved the problem for now

    Solution: disable Apport.
    Backups are amazing. 99% of data loss can be prevented by spending less than $100 on an external drive.
    If you have seen an error, there is a good chance someone else has, too. Google is your friend.

    Re: Quantal installation and upgrade experience

    Had to downgrade my laptop back to 12.04 (Kubuntu) because it uses a ati mobility HD 4250, which is no longer supported with the fglrx drivers in xserver 1.13. Boo to AMD.

    But my desktop works fine once I updated the fglrx drivers to 12.10 (using an XFX HD5850). That said gaming performance through WINE is poor for me with these drivers. I'm hoping 12.11 will better (though I haven't tried the beta release).

    I'm hoping the upcoming linux Steam release will pressure AMD into providing much better support for linux. Otherwise I'll be buying a Nvidia card for my desktop.

    Re: Quantal installation and upgrade experience

    The only reason it was a little bad for me was that the new Maximus V Gene from Asus had old BIOS, and I had installed Kubuntu 11.10 for a short period of time, so I could upgrade, but there happened to be some broken packages, and so I had to do a fresh install.
