LXer: Ubuntu 12.10 Released, attacking Windows 8

Published at LXer:

Above the download button, a slogan appears urging the users to install Ubuntu 12.10 instead of Microsoft Windows 8, not because of Ubuntu’s superiority but just to avoid the drama of Metro UI. In a matter of fact, it says “Avoid the pain of Windows 8. The all-new Ubuntu 12.10 is out now“.

Avoid the pain of canoncial OSes with unity.

BTW, canonical is, as usual, making stupid mistakes.

Ubuntu 12.10 will be supported for two years and includes cutting-edge new features that make your music, videos, documents and apps much easier to access.

Ubuntu 12.10

Code name
Quantal Quetzal

Release date
October 2012

End of life date
April 2014

Poor communication between the marketoids and the wiki maintainers?
