Just a few days ago, Unity 8 became available for Ubuntu 13.10. However, it is just an Alpha release and it’s not coming to the ‘stable city’ until Ubuntu 14.xx release.
Now, I am putting those ‘xx’ because it’s not clear if Canonical aim to launch their 14.04 LTS along with a hell-of-a-buggy desktop-environment like Unity 8. So, even if it’s available to install it in Ubuntu 13.10, please DO NOT because you are going to have a huge headache. Yes sir, Unity 8 is currently nothing more than an experimental view of QML phone shell. That has been told, it’s not meant for every-day standard use except for lunatics (like me) who aren’t afraid loosing their software mentality. Long live the Linux world!
