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.

This is my number one issue for running Windows 7 on my laptop in work (number two is that the corporate apps are all based around Exchange / Sharepoint but that isn't so big an issue). I move between single/multiple screens and dock/undock and over the years this has never worked seamlessly on Linux (we only ever use Thinkpads). There are a few people in the office who run Linux natively but they tend to leave their laptops permanently docked and don't take them to meetings. The rest of us run Windows natively and run Linux in VMs, otherwise there would be no end of trouble - on a few occasions when someone running Linux natively tried to present using a projector, they couldn't get it to work properly and there was a lot of joking that they'd need to recompile the kernel to get it working ;)
