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".

I can see the Microsoft fanboys coming out in full force. That's the reason I left Neowin.

People seem to forget, there is more than 1 Ubuntu. I myself use Xubuntu and will never, ever have a Microsoft product in my house. Ever.

Even the word Microsoft makes me need a shower. Those people are dirty and crooked, I don't give a damn if their stuff 'works' if it has all sorts of backdoors and a copy of Windows 2 GUI they humbly call Modern. Well I call it garbage, I don't like Unity also.

As per the article, this is the BEST time for Linux to jump in and put a strangle hold on the OS market. Windows 8 is trash and everybody knows it except fanboys, who willingly crawl around in Microsoft's intestines like worms.

I don't like dual booters either, how can you break an addiction if you keep exposing yourself?.

More like the anti-Ubuntu crowd. For some reason these people think it is of immense interest to the world that they do not use nor like it. In reality though, they're just annoying nitwits that no-one gives a rats ass about.
