http://ubuntuforums.org – Ubuntu 12.04 running Mate 1.4 desktop and was a clean install about 2 weeks ago. This is a multiboot system with multiple hard drives that include various flavors of Windows. Please note that I have 3 of these multiboot computers on my home network and I what to be able to access all windows/Ubuntu drives from and too all the other computers on my LAN for file transfer/sharing purposes. I had this working in v9.04 and v10.04 but not without problems back then. I opted out of v11.04 etc because of the Unity desktop and went to Mint 11/12 but came back to Ubuntu 12.04 when I found out abou (Hardware)
