    So how do you like ubuntu 12.10

    Hey guys! I've been out of the loop for a year or so due to not even owning a computer, I always got by with just using my roomies to just surf the web or whatever. I just wanted to know how you guys have been liking ubuntu lately.

    I installed 12.10 but it was still a little too buggy for me. Back to 12.04 and happy as can be!

    12.10 is very buggy and not all that good.
    I will try 13.04 though

    It is very good on the machines I tried it on.

    Ok. Except for the Ubuntu Software Centre. Slow as hell on my pc. Dash too tends to get to turtle speed when I've been using my computer for a while (around 4-5 hours) without restarting.

    I've found the Webapps useless. Correct me about the naming if i'm wrong. I mean those GMail,Youtube,Facebook addons you install within firefox and then show up in the left sidebar (launcher i think its named?) They might be of some use in the future but right now they are simply a waste of time, functionality-wise.

    Otherwise I've not found any problems. Rather good release overall.

    I tried 12.10 early on, and it didn't have the repos i use on 12.04... this may have changed, i do not know.
    12.10, seemed to be pretty stable when i used it- there were some bugs, though.

    I decided to just stay 12.04 LTS, it gives me no hassles, and every repo i like and its software, all work fine.

    Seems to be ok but I have left it behind now. Upgraded to 13.04 dev over the weekend.

    I am running 13.10 testing installed in dual boot with 12.10 and even though 13.04 still has almost 3 months until final release, it is already a LOT better then 12.10...
