    Raring is stable/fast

    Now, the installer for one needs a overhaul as it's just outright slow (Windows 8 installs faster actually windows 8 install in less than 5 minutes on my system) but it takes 5 minutes just to get to the partitioning screen... I've heard it's been a long time issue, and I should have just partitioned with disk management but I got through it... fix it!

    But now that I'm in my system I gotta say it's stable! but I don't want to try the nvidia drivers knowing that I'm on kernel 3.8 as I've know there were issue for a long time which still are not fixed to my knowledge.

    I actually find 13.04 more stable than 12.04... no joke.

    RR beta1 is perhaps ATM stable.
    However, it was not just the other day, when booting ended up in busybox shell due to issues with initramfs-tools and the new udev + systemd.
    It is a good practice to remember a development version may break anytime.

    I find 13.04 pretty usable.
    I never used dev branches before but i was tired of the old 12.04 feel and 12.10 was jerky on my machines.
    One of the things that i find bad, related with previous releases, is the shutdown process. In 12.04 the shutdown was instantly and in 13.04 takes a while.

    13.04 is really great!!
    Unfortunately I am experiencing many serious issues related to nvidia driver with my geforce 630m that were happening before with 12.10.

    Loving Raring on both my machines. Very speedy and stable. Raring's working on my AMD C-70 netbook which it previously did not work well on (no brightness settings, etc)

    Tonight I intend to clone my production system (12.04LTS) on to a new hard drive which I will then upgrade to 13.04. Yep, I be impressed with Raring.
