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.

Borked my upgrade

Tried upgrading from Ubuntu 10.04, but totally hosed the installation instead. GRUB was only displaying entries for the 10.04 kernels. Probably has to do with me upgrading from 9.04 to 9.10 to 10.04 and having several third-party repos.

Did a clean install (which is a lot faster, to boot) just now and finally got to try Unity. I kinda miss the application menu with all the neat categories, but I guess I'll get used to it eventually.
