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.

Broken kernel mode setting for Nvidia GT 520

Having suffered many kernel modesetting issues with ATI cards and Fedora, I was hoping that an Nvidia GT 520 wouldn't have them with this Ubuntu 12.04 release.

Sadly, the installer is broken on that card - if you don't choose "nomodeset" via f6, you get some CD/DVD thrashing and a blank screen with a flashing cursor for a couple of minutes and that's it. Epic fail :-(
