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.

Just wait for the reviews. There'll be mixed up feelings about it. To me, Unity is a overall failure. I've moved to RHEL 6.2 and plan to stay with that for at least two to three years after this desktop mess along the lines of Unity and GNOME Hell is more settled.
