Phoronix: Ubuntu Now Drafting Plans For Possible 12.04.5 LTS
Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS was released this week and while the "Precise Pangolin" Long-Term Support release will still be maintained through 2017 with package updates, this was the last planned point release / ISO with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS just being a few months away.
Hi everyone,I've been attempting to switch to linux full time again for a few months now on the desktop and the only thing holding me back since tf2 was ported is how damn slow kde is. I'm on reasonably modern hardware, xeon E3-1230v2, 16GB ram, GTX 680 4GB, samsung 840 pro, 3x 30" monitors using the nvidia binary driver with twinview. I know my hardware can handle this.
