Well, Ubuntu's "most anticipated" release has been out for a while and getting quite the attention. I no longer use Ubuntu since the implementing of Unity, but I love to keep an eye on it's progress. I was seeing news about 12.04 everywhere when it came to Linux websites and I gave in to giving it a try. The appearance was not that different with the implementing of HUD to the side. I tried it from a liveCD and I truly enjoyed myself. My system was not lagging as this is what kept me from settling with Ubuntu within the last year or so. I installed it, which went fine, however once I ran the updates and installed the recommended video card driver --- everything went downhill and my computer was pretty much unusable with Ubuntu on it. My desktop would not load, at all, with the exception of an error continuously popping up, all I could see was a black screen. I am not sure what caused this problem, but I quickly moved to Xubuntu 12.04 (which is another post all together..). I just wanted to share my very brief experience of Ubuntu 12.04. Did you experience anything like what I mentioned? Are you having a much better experience? I would love to hear thoughts from anyone that has given it a go or is currently using it as their main OS.
