Re: Canonical: where's the 14.04 hype?
I, for one, am really happy with the AMD drivers. Always had to use nomodeset kernel arg for my Radeon6480 card.

First time, since 12.04 that I didn't have to use nomodeset. Horray to that.
Also, the Radeon DPM, really gives very nice battery life.
Very nice and polished release it seems, and have been very stable. At least from Feb 1st week here.
I am using Ubuntu Studio development release BTW, with KDE/FVWM added on top of it.
Canonical IS, is really getting more attention anyways, and are more focused on mobile platform development, from what I've gathered.
That's fine. It is a company and it has it's goals and milestones to achieve.
As for the hype part, many websites I have seen have listed it as a substitute to WinXP.
But really, that shouldn't be the case.
Ubuntu w/Unity is pretty heavy for machines that used to run WinXP.
Looking at the forums over the past month there have been many threads where this has been brought to light too.
P.S.: Great work by Ubuntu Studio team, like the Wallpaper by MadeInKobaia !
