2.13 GHz Dual Core
4GB DDR3 RAM
OS – Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit
Booting from Live USB (763MB) was a awesome experience better than 12.04. Installation went smooth and took around 15 minutes to install. Desktop was responsive but not as 12.04.
Updated Software Sources , then install Gnome 3 Shell and after reboot I was back to my favourite Gnome default desktop it was responsive compare to unity desktop. By default you will find a power off option so shut down and restart become easy.
Ubuntu 12.10 and its Problems
Package Selection- distro comes in 763MB iso but didnot provide GIMP or Cheese.
Software Install issue – You will not able to run 32 bit application as Ubuntu 12.10 not ready to install Wine.
As it has some dependecy issues installing ia32-lib
sudo apt-get install ia32-lib
also fails gives output
Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
So you will not able to install Wine 1.5/1.4 , XAMPP (PHP MySQL Development).
After installing flash and necessary codecs everything runs smooth and experience was good.
Conclusion : Unity Desktop was not mature compare to Gnome 3 default desktop, user interface was average on unity, You will find not able to install some software , I will recommend OpenSuse 12.2 Gnome , Linux Mint Mate ,stick back to ubuntu 12.04 or wait for ubuntu next release.
