Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu The Canonical team has released Ubuntu 12.04 - a new long term support release. The biggest new feature is the HUD, an addition to the traditional application menu system, where you can search for the actions you want to perform instead of having to hunt for them in menus. Unity overall has been improved, and I must say that even though this new release is simply not at all ready for Asus ZenBooks, Unity runs perfectly well on it, and to my own shock and surprise, I'm slowly warming up to it. It's starting to make sense, it looks nice (especially after some custom tweaking), has become a lot more configurable, and it's really, really, really fast.

Built on Ubuntu's core and polished with KDE’s applications and workspaces, Kubuntu 12.04 LTS is a grand example of friendly, fast and beautiful software. We recommend it as the perfect OS for casual users, students, Linux gamers, software developers, professionals, and anyone interested in a free, open platform that is both beautiful and useful.

I have been running the beta version of Kubuntu 12.04 LTS for a while now without any issues. This release features the recently released Calligra Office Suite version 2.4 (which is a fork of and upgrade to the older KOffice suite), and so it promises to be a very good release of Kubuntu, and I feel I can recommend it.

I was always a KDE and kubuntu fan, but the latest kubuntu releases were very unstable in my box, so I moved to xubuntu and I really like it. xfce is simple but elegant, powerful but non-memory hungry and it is conservative but modern at the same time.

Take a look at it too! ;)
