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".

it is not tops at distrowatch anymore, so it appears its now a has-been for enthusiasts.

That's a bit of a leap. All Mint variations on Distrowatch are counted as a single distro. If you combine the ranking for every official Ubuntu variation that's on the list you get a drastically different number putting it at the top. Is it as popular as it once was? No. Is it even close to being yesterday's news? Definitely not. (and to be clear, I haven't used Ubuntu in years so this isn't some Ubuntu fanboy defending his favorite distro)
