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".

"Name a desktop application applicable to most users, and I will show you a screenshot of a functional equivalent (or better) running on my desktop.

I wasn't disputing that. I simply stated that massive walls of text with links that can be easily found on google don't constitute an argument.

Nor do your made-up criticisms constitute any kind of argument. Ad hominem comments merely serve to degrade any possible discussion, they add absolutely nothing useful, they are in all likelihood merely attempts to troll, and are best left unsaid.

In the regrettable event someone tries it on anyway, such as yourself, then the best policy for other readers is to conclude that whatever concept that poster is pushing is absolute bunk, and whatever that poster is opposing is good oil.
