    Default What's new with Canonical's Ubuntu?

    What's new with Canonical's Ubuntu?

    Ubuntu 12.10, known as Quantal Questzal, will be releasing on 18 October 2012, but what can we expect from the forthcoming version?

    ATTENTION: Bloody dishonourable SCAMRAL agent and clones

    Trying to bait me into replying to your troll posts is not going to work.

    What's so important about having a start button? It's just a button...

    I like that everything is new and being redone. Will see how it works in practice, but it looks promising to me.

    Color purple--meh...
    also, window borders--why this grey black--why not full black.

    Window sizes are not yet consistent--every popup window has its own size--makes users just naar.
    But, I like the concept anyway.

    Seems like Ubuntu issues more new versions than cars from the US. I thought the 12.04 was supposed to be a long term release. Is it really necessary to keep on upgrading to the latest version all the time? The one I have now works really well and I canot fault it. However, there is always the feeling that I might be missing something by not having the latest version, or is this idea false?

    12.04 is for people, like me, that don't like regular upgrades. The only reason I left 10.04 is because I gave Unity a try and prefer it to Gnome.

    However, they have to cater for the upgraders too.
