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".

Unity still slow? Check.

...

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


Something must be wrong with your computer or drivers then. Have you tried submitting a bug report? Unity has problems on low end machines such as those based on Intel Atom or AMD E- or C-series CPUs, but it has no problems running on for example a core 2 machine given a decent graphics card.
