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.

Oh yes.
sleep/hibernate with Linux is a lottery game. If you are lucky, it works. Sometimes. With some specific distro release and the proper BIOS. Sigh...

To be fair:
I have occasional problems with my trusty old WinXP laptop. And even more with a 2010Q4 Macbook Pro. How Apple manages to screw up with just a handful of models to support is beyond me.
