Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu The Canonical team has released Ubuntu 12.04 - a new long term support release. The biggest new feature is the HUD, an addition to the traditional application menu system, where you can search for the actions you want to perform instead of having to hunt for them in menus. Unity overall has been improved, and I must say that even though this new release is simply not at all ready for Asus ZenBooks, Unity runs perfectly well on it, and to my own shock and surprise, I'm slowly warming up to it. It's starting to make sense, it looks nice (especially after some custom tweaking), has become a lot more configurable, and it's really, really, really fast.

sleep/hibernate ?

I hardly dare to post this question as no doubt some people will call me a moron:

Here goes, a retorical question: instead of forcing new behaviours on us, would it please be possible that sleep/hibernate issues be fixed ?

On a daily basis I switch my laptop between standalone and docked, between one screen and two screens; and each time I need a full reboot as sleep/hibernate simply hangs. This worked perfectly well on both my windows and mac laptops over the last decade.... but not on my linux laptop (at all).

of course, no doubt some people will tell me to write a patch myself...
I sincerely wish I could.
cynical ? nop, just what I experienced several times now ;)

ps: feel free to call me a moron; I just wish I could make better use of my Linux laptop ;)
