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".

athough their 18 Alpha revamped Anaconda in a really bad way :-(

Anaconda is a crap from Red Hat 9.x to this day and it's getting worse with every release. ;) How much RAM it needs now to launch graphical interface? 768 or more? Oh, you always can edit anaconda python files on Live CD and fix that. Did I say that only graphical one supports custom partitions? And you can't simply create extended partition, because it will be created automatically only after 3rd one. And it's slow as hell. Thankfully if you install the damn thing, RH/clones/Fedora are pretty fun and stable distros.

Ubuntu alternate is a brilliant thing compared to Anaconda. I always go with alternate, reminds me happy times with Debian, when I had more time for PC than today.

Anaconda work fine, you can always run the text installer if you are short on memory.

Lets make up imaginary problems about an installer that has been working fine since redhat 7.1.
