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.

It was primarily sleep/hibernate issues that drove me back to Windows on my Thinkpad.

After a weekend spent struggling to get Linux working properly, with no solution in sight, it was quicker and easier to install XP to get a fully working system.

A shame, as I genuinely would prefer to be running Linux Mint on it.


Strange, I've never had problems with suspend/hibernate/resume on Linux.

My computers are: ThinkPad T510 and a bunch of desktops with ASUS motherboards (P5P41T-LE, etc).

I suggest you file bug reports to: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/ if you are still struggling with suspend/hibernate problems.

Also, ask/pressure your hardware manufacturers to contribute back fixes as well.
