This is the first version of ubuntu with unity de i have ran that is silky smooth compared to 12.04/12.10 etc. Compiz is running nicely without any animation lags and the unity reveal animation is jerk free.

I have been critical of past versions of unity because of the jerky animations and compiz bugs but if ringtail is running this well at release time then it will earn a spot as my main distro on my ssd drive where windows 7 currently resides.

Has anyone else found the performance of ringtail to be a significant improvement?
