Summary: Ubuntu 12.10 contains more controversial changes than expected. If you can live with or work around those changes, it remains a powerful and useful desktop Linux operating system.


Here's a bullet list of the new features and changes for Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal):

  • New GRUB 2 boot loader
  • Graphics makeover for Ubuntu Greeter and the default theme
  • Remote login/remote desktop access added to Greeter log-in prompt
  • Nautilus file manager sticks at version 3.4
  • Linux kernel incremented to version 3.5
  • Unity revs to 6.8.0; Unity 2D is dropped; previews added
  • Software Updater simplified
  • Dash search returns online results from Ubuntu One and Amazon
  • Dash preview
  • New Dash Photo lens; new Gwibber icon
  • New Share Links tab in Ubuntu One Control Panel
  • New centralised management for online accounts
  • New versions for some bundled applications
  • Disk image is now 800MB, so install requires a USB memory or a DVD
  • Menus are reorganised and many previous menu choices consolidated under Dash
  • Python revs to version 3 (with version 2 still supported for now)  
I feel more like I do now than I did a while ago...
