This is awesome... if I go back to PC ill probably go to Ubuntu and use virtualbox for office apps.

Looks way better than OSX design wise.

With Cinnamon it will work better than with Unity they say.

Ontopic: I am not sure if I am going to use it, but I think I will seed a torent of it (currently seeding 12.04, so why not?).

I stay away from Unity. I don't like the multi-display behavior.

I usually install packages as I need them from a clean installation. I typically use i3 + GDM. I like simple window layouts and being able to quickly switch between them. Having a tiny memory footprint is just a side-effect. :cool: Either way, until something "wows" me, I think I will be sticking with 12.04.x until the next LTS release, unless something cool comes around.

I will seed them all and provide the torrent files here (might be a bit faster than the highly loaded direct d/l servers).

Anyhow, here are the official torrents for Lubuntu 12.10 (with LXDE, obviously) and Xubuntu 12.10(Xfce), the Ubuntu torrents (not official but from the web or created by me) are the last on the list.

Lubuntu
i386 version
AMD64 version
Intel-Mac compatible 64-bit version
PowerPC version, for Gx Macs and other IBM-cpu based computers

Xubuntu
i386
x86_64

Ubuntu
The AMD64 related file can be found here. It is a torrent I newly created.
The i386 version is being seeded by me using an existing torrent, d/l went fast with it and the hosting of the torrent file on my mediafire account saves you the hassle of having to face all the junk (bittorrent) search engines potentially throw at you.

Such a waste of time. Use the alternate install disk and install a minimal command line system which is bare Ubuntu. Add packages from that rather than trying to cherry pick what you do and don't want from a full Ubuntu installation.

That would be helpful if system came without anything on it.However I'm just optimizing preinstalled build for company proprietary application.i'm not complaining,i just feel they stuffed too much for default install option tho :laugh:

yeah but the store and the whole package is nice, and it integrates across devices, unlike other managers.

I was not serious, hence the blink smiley.

Edit: I have been foolish. there are (of course :rolleyes:) official Ubuntu torrents. Weird how I missed them. http://torrent.ubuntu.com:6969/
Sorry for those somewhat useless posts (quoted below).

I was not serious, hence the blink smiley.
I know, but I don't think agent00skid was joking. :p
I used to play around with Gentoo a lot. Now I have a full time job and a daughter so time is a little more precious to me now than it was a few years ago.

too bad Suse, Gentoo and this could COmbine into an OS, unfortunately this isnt defacto because most games still require WINE to run on Linux (Sux actually) and most driver support isnt there fully
