Canonical has just released the latest Ubuntu update which comes dubbed as Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal. It packs many new features, updates and improvements came along the the six-month development after Ubuntu 12.04 LTS edition.
While all the Linux fans are already rushing to download the latest release, most of the users already running on the new Ubuntu 12.10 are very disappointed about some of its’ features and the poor performance.
Popular Linux forums are currently getting flooded with lots of questions and complaints regarding the latest Ubuntu 12.10 update. Most of the users claims their PC has slowed down after installing the new version. Specially those users with NVIDIA graphic cards seems to have run into problems like system freezing and corrupted imagery.
New Amazon advertisements also seems to be annoying users, which shows up advertisements whenever they search something using the Unity’s Dash. It may come as an innovative feature for users who always shop on Amazon but for most others it’s really annoying to see advertisements all the time.
Keep in mind that this is just an update to the more stable Ubuntu 12.04. New version will probably get much better in time before the next update due in six month. But if I were you I will stick with 12.04 until this new version gets stable. But then again, like Ubuntu slogan says it’s actually a great way to “Avoid The Pain of Windows 8.”
