I'm happy with it. Ubuntu continues to be one of the only two distros that I have been able to simply install without any compatibility issues. The wireless networking functions flawlessly. The Software Center works great, and it even installed the proprietary Nvidia drivers as part of the Installation process when given permission. Furthermore, the startup time is quick, there were no dual boot issues with windows, and the response time when working in 13.04 is snappy.
I don't consider Unity an issue, since it takes mere minutes to install Cinnamon. However, I might just give it a shot; the parents seem to like it, and they're happy that they didn't have to drop a Ben Franklin on the new Win 8.
Keeping up with the testing versions since about a month ago and it seems solid here albeit in a VM.
You think that's air you're breathing now?
My impression of a ringtail?
Okay (clears throat):
Click click click, purr, click click click...
Wurble click, growl, click!
Yeah sums it up I think
I think all should be commended highly for a very nice release!

No plan to upgrade until next LTS. I have releases with like only 9 month support cycle no matter how good it is -- which IMHO sounds like a good release.
For me raring boots faster on usb than 12.04 when its installed. Thats on my modern i5 laptop btw.
I've noticed gnome-system-monitor no longer eats lots of cpu when its open which is nice.
Cpu sits between 47-49C on 13.04 whereas with 12.04 it sits in the 51-54C range, so I expect a longer battery life.
The new nautilus theme and icon is ugly IMHO. The new dash icon is nice.
On Raring I had one gpu lockup, I tried ctrl+alt+prt sc+k and ctrl+alt+backspace both didn't work nor did ctr+alt+F1
U'm one question:
Am I the only one who is missing the battery indicator on 13.04? I can't see my battery level or estimated time remaining. The indicator just isn't there.

One odd thing that i have noticed is that with latest firefox you need to add manually to config New -> Boolean -> Name: network.protocol-handler.external.magnet -> Value -> false . Otherwise firefox even dont ask what to do with magnet links. Is this a bug or choice? Otherwise seems great release.
Just curious...anyone who installed 13.04 in the last few days...did you get any updates yesterday and today? I haven't....i have been running 13.04 development for a few weeks and since it went final, i haven't gotten any new updates...the updater checks and tells me i am up to date...
I realize it was just released, so there may not be any updates for a while...but i just wanted to make sure i am ok...i had tried to change over to the "saucy" repos in the terminal, but it did not work for me, and the updater reverted back to the ringtail repos...so i am just trying to make sure my updater is ok....Thanks
