    Or maybe what you call "derivatives" are in fact the exact same distribution, just with a different set of default packages, and thus the thread applies to them equally well.

    I'll update a test laptop first, see what's new and what cost/benefits are available. I'm happy with 12.04. It make my T400 scream with speed compared to the alternative

    Re: 12.10-What Will You Do?

    it is difficult to answer this poll because i use ubuntu on multiple machines and some of them will receive a new fresh install and others will receive upgrades,,, maybe we should ask witch way you would use it the most or maybe even how many machines do you use ubuntu on,,,, just a thought....

The only problem with Mint is that they don't have any official way at all to do an upgrade, rather than a clean install.

    That is a nice idea. But I don't think it would work properly for people who install a lot of deb packages manually or from third party repositories.

    It probably doesn't work with manually installed debs, but it does work with PPAs.

    They are better of with a 100% clean install in that case. Cause normal dist-upgrade will be problematic too.

    I am pretty sure that I will stick with Ubuntu 12.04.1 64 bit Long Term Service until April 2014. Unity 6.2 and 6.4 are slower in Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit than Unity 5.6 in Ubuntu 12.04.1 64 bit LTS according to Phoronix.

    Re: 12.10-What Will You Do?

    I always dual boot an LTS and the in betweens. Right now I am running 10.04 and 12.04 since it just came out, but 10.04 will be gone soon and 12.10 will take its place.

    Goodbye 10.04, you will be missed.
