Ubuntu 12.10 review: finally growing up

Filed under
Ubuntu

After reviewing the last version of Ubuntu 12 a few months ago I wasn’t too impressed with the OS in general. Ubuntu kept loyal to its obscure following by not dipping its toes into the real reason Windows and OSX are popular. And I’m happy to say that it has finally broken out of that mold with Linux Ubuntu 12.10.

Single core blues

When I installed Ubuntu on my regular setup I noticed it is extremely slow on a single core, 2 GB system where the previous version ran fine. This time I didn’t even run it from a USB stick, this was a pure install from the get go. So I moved over to a Quad Core, 4 GB system and it performed reasonably well.
