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.

That review was Ubuntu on a Galaxy Nexus. The tablet experience *might* be better as they've been working on it longer. But yeah, I don't have much other use for my nexus 7 other than tinkering. The thing is, I'm not sure I have time to repeat the experiment of going to Ubuntu and then back to nexus. Plasma Active is going to hit ver 1.0 soon I hear. I think I'll give that another try first.
