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".

Still can't block msn spammers in Empathy? Check.

Unity still slow? Check.

Resets previous settings somehow? Check.

Still feels sluggish on a core i7 / 6G ram machine? Check.

Empathy UI even worse than before? Check.

Still has minimal config for the launcher, and bad dual monitor support? Check.

So basically the same as 12.04, pretty disappointing. There *are* some nice little updates and tweaks, but this is not (and I don't think it's supposed to be) a major revolutionary update.

Please please please can someone make it so I can block the 18 msn spammers that message me as soon as I log in to msn (when I can log in).
