Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu

After the customary six months of incubation, Ubuntu 13.10 - codenamed Saucy Salamander - has hatched. The new version of the popular Linux distribution brings updated applications and several new features, including augmented search capabilities in the Unity desktop shell.

Although Saucy Salamander offers some useful improvements, it's a relatively thin update. XMir, the most noteworthy item on the 13.10 roadmap, was ultimately deferred for inclusion in a future release. Canonical's efforts during the Saucy development cycle were largely focused on the company's new display server and upcoming Unity overhaul, but neither is yet ready for the desktop.

It's also the first version available for phones. Well, for the Nexus 4.

It's also the first version available for phones. Well, for the Nexus 4.

Official installation images exist for two phones (Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 4) and two tablets (Nexus 7 2012 and Nexus 10).

Also Ubuntu Touch is known to work on dozens of other devices through community efforts:

Thom, as you apparently own a Nexus 7 2012 a report on how well Ubuntu runs on the device would be highly appreciated.
