*buntu 12.10 is Out
Looking forward to a fancy upgrade. I might give Unity another try, but maybe not. Xubuntu has served me well, so I might stick with that.
Frankly, the best thing about Xubuntu is that it doesn't come with a ton of bloat. No LibreOffice, for example, which is absolutely pointless for me (it does come with Abiword and Gnumeric, which is sort of ironic since those are/were the core tools in the "Gnome Office Suite").
