You can download it now. Mine is upgrading. It's downloaded it and is installing now. Says about 44 minutes remaining. It's good how i can still do everything with this going in the background. ;D

EDIT: Wow, look at the ubuntu forums!

Currently Active Users: 16706 (1246 members and 15460 guests)

Usually there's about maybe 1/20th of that amount of people on them.

My opinion is that it's nothing to write home about. The only differences i've noticed is:


  • It's removed a load of animations you could have. No apparent reason for that and now i can't have the fire effect when windows close.
  • The close down button has changed to just make a drop down menu. When you press ctrl+alt+del it brings up a menu for it which didn't look as good as that last one and just looks like a regular window.
