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.

    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.

    Reviewing 15.04 Alpha 1 (Dec 21, 2014)

    the biggest change in 15.04 is not in Ubuntu, but in Kubuntu - this one comes with Plasma 5 as default.

    Take the latest from here and enjoy (unetbootin + usb):

    Reviewing 14.10 (Utopic Unicorn) (Oct 26, 2014)

    Until top panel remains riveted, Linux (Ubuntu flavor) will remain ridged, un-Linux.
    Unity panel is acceptable.

    As usual, LinuxMint will surely enjoy this "make" to offer us a better build.

    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
