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 and lightdm in 12.04 have been borked with LDAP/NFS environments, which seemed like a giant oversight for an LTS release.


I had a problem with lightdm as a ldap client, but its easy swapped with gdm Unity was no problem. Googling suggests the even lightdm is not a problem now
