    IMHO, we are in a period of quiet achievement. Although Ubuntu and Canonical could be said to have had a tough time in a PR sense recently, they are surely gaining ground. 14.04 looks to be a fantastic polished release but bigger things await in the medium term. Stay tuned!

    I remember when there was a countdown to the latest Ubuntu release. I miss the excitement of those days. (I also miss the brown theme.) Times change, I suppose...

    Is there any advantage other than small improvements to Unity, to upgrade from version 13.1 to 14.04?

    I would think [pending finances] it would be great for Ubuntu to capitalize on everyone's "fears" about Windows XP's "demise". Again if they could fund it some quick hit TV spots would be epic!

    I'm running the Beta 2 now and it works, where-as 13.10 I couldn't even get to install....still don't know why lol. Anywho I have heard that a new Kernel is in play, along with some other new shiny packages. All I know is that it works swimmingly for

    Have to admit, I'm kinda hesitant to move on from 12.04 to 14.04 right away. Maybe I'll wait for a month or two.

    +1

    I'll be waiting for 14.04.1 (around Aug 21) before I update my server and main desktop PCs. We always find new bugs when a new release comes out. LTS releases are better than non LTS but still not perfect.

    As for my test PC been running 14.04 for months.

    If your updater is set to LTS mode (if you haven't been prompted to update to the interim releases, it is), then I think you don't get prompted for update until the .1 release. It worked that way in the past.

    14.04 is the third LTS since I started to use Ubuntu and 10.04 seem to get the most attention because of the cosmetic changes (branding colors, icons, and light themes). 12.04 and 14.04 seem to be more polished versions of their predecessors.

    newer programs, new kernel with plenty of new features, new and much improved opensource AMD drivers... DE also get upgraded with features, performance improvements etc. well actually you can get most of this stuff via PPA but then it would be a lot of PPA.
