Ubuntu 13.04 Preview
I was running a smooth, quick and powerful system again. It wasn’t just the LibreOffice issue, but you could get something like a random compiz crash or random screen flickering which was quite a pain and is something I’ve never experienced with such a stable OS as Ubuntu. But after updating and with the new Linux kernel, I’ve had the best end-user experience on a very easy to use operating system.
I even had some of my family members who can be easily categorized/classed by geeks like us as computer illiterates using Ubuntu discovering the Software-Center.
Also, joining an overseas call on Skype, which has delivered an awesome experience even better than the main house PC with Windows 7 on the same connection as Ubuntu, we got such a stable and smooth call (audio/video).
Special thanks to my colleague, Chris Jones, who was also testing the Daily Builds of Ubuntu 13.04 and has provided some screenshots for us. Unixmen will cover the release of Ubuntu 13.04 ‘Raring Ringtail’ and have a full review on the release date of April 25.
