Ubuntu is a Linux distribution that starts with the breadth of Debian and adds regular releases (every six months), a clear focus on the user and usability (it should "Just Work", TM) and a commitment to security updates with 18 months of support for every release. Ubuntu ships with the latest Gnome release as well as a selection of server and desktop software that makes for a comfortable desktop experience off a single installation CD.

You can run gnome on any distro now, and gnome allows customization, ubuntu does not. Not allowing people to change their desktop is the exact opposite of what Linux was meant to be, Ubuntu is therefore the exact opposite of what Linux was meant to be.
4 years after they forced their users to have a dock on the left side that no on wanted, they are finally allowing those of us that dont have a 42 inch wide screen or tablet to move the dock to the bottom. If it takes you 4 years before you listen to your users, you are not worthy of being a linux company Ubuntu. And their other insane quest to get Linux on phones and tablets is not going to work, I mean if a multi billion dollar company like microsh!te could not get their OS on to those devices, what hope does Ubuntu have when they cannot support the android apps and have almost no apps of their own? No one wants this! What we DID want was a replacement for Windows on our desktops, but then they lost that too by trying to capture phone and tablet market.

Linux Mint is to much better than this.

Love the distro, HATE the DE. Glad that Gnome finally is looking good and since it has extensions its a very linux like DE, unlike UNITY which locks you into everything and allows No customization whatsoever.
Check out this one simple extension on Gnome that allows the dock to be moved;
See Canonical, was that so hard? You are losing massive numbers of users due to your insane desktop policies.
I recently updated my ubuntu 12.04 to 12.10. It's not good in terms of interface because the alert or optional message is not getting displayed and the text is having the white background in select options which is not good at all......thinking back to downgrade the ubuntu 12.04. which is very good and stable.
Quetzalcoatl (or, as he was known to the Mayan people as Kukulcan or Ququmatz), is the perfect name for this distro so long as it get's released before Dec. 21, 2012. lol
Soldier1st: you miss the point of my text completely, I have been trying Linux for the past 20 years and I am having the same old problems now as I had 20 years ago i.e. no printer drivers no scanner driver, can’t use 2 monitors nothing remotely as good as photoshop (and don’t mention Gimp it’s a joke” the man in the street just wants a OS and software to do their bidding without tinkering about on the command line. This is the year 2010 not 1985
