    Ubuntu 12.04 Lts Released today

    Who's going to run Ubuntu 12.04 Lts or one of the derivatives? I am going to do a fresh install this weekend.

    Re: Ubuntu 12.04 Lts Released today

    I installed it yesterday on the HTPC.
    Actually, what I did was partition a spare 250GB drive then clone the Win 7 OS and storage partition from the HTPC's 500GB drive and create a 30GB partition for Precise (12.04).
    The 500GB drive had Lucid (10.04 LTS) so when I get this 250 set up the way I like it I'll just replace Lucid with Precise.

    I'm not a big fan of Unity but I have to admit that this latest version is acceptable.
    Still can't navigate as fast as Gnome but it sure looks pretty.

    I don't really care for unity either, so I got rid of it in favor of Cinnamon.
