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".

Still has minimal config for the launcher, and bad dual monitor support? Check.


Still great dual-monitor support and the right launcher config out of the box? Check.

I agree with the above as far as Unity speed, never losing settings, and the sluggishness not being problems, however dual monitor support has been a big issue for me in Ubuntu. The real issue is not Ubuntu in my case though as it is across board with any distro I use. For whatever reason I have really bad screen tearing and can't seem to resolve it. I think a hardware change is needed for my setup.
