Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Ubuntu 12.10 has been released, sporting the rather... Interesting tagline 'Avoid the pain of Windows 8'. Two main features are that websites can now be treated as actual applications, integrating them into Unity. The divide between local and online content when searching has also been softened, which, they claim, makes it easier to find what you're looking for. On the server side, it includes the Folsom release of OpenStack, "Cinder, for block storage and Quantum, a virtual networking API. Ubuntu's Metal-as-a-Service bare-metal provisioning tool has been updated and now supports Calxeda hyperscale hardware based on ARM".

If you add the PPA STEAM still installs on debian wheezy. And *POOF* there went the most interesting part about the new ubuntu release out the window. Do not get me wrong, i really like ubuntu, it is just not for me as they do not even have TWiN in a tgeir proper version yet. Debian fails in this regards too but on the other hand AmiWM on debian is still from 1998 instead of the recent release.

Maaaaan does centralized software management not work in my favour.
