Pros: All data seems to have been preserved during upgrade from 12.04
Cons: Some functionality now broken post upgrade

The hope for a seamless upgrade is dashed.

Printing which used to work well now fails with "Broken Filter" status, whatever that means

Dash Home no longer works so cannot launch apps or go to recently used items.

Bit like my school reports really "Could do better!"

Pros: Learning curve is fairly easy
Cons: Transition from MS os seems a bit slow, maybe just me :)

First experience with Ubuntu, so nothing really to judge by other than many years and ditros of MS. firefox is much slower to load sites than firefox on windows, seems to hunt around a lot.
Dash is handy, music box will take a bit of playing with as ms media is a simple functional library for music. Still running both systems for coparison but using Ubuntu as default, making myself learn it.
