[Discuss] The next Linux desktop: Ubuntu 12.04

First Look at Ubuntu Linux 12.04 "Precise Pangolin"

  Ubuntu 12.04 is coming in April, but eager users can check out the
  beta version today. "Precise Pangolin" includes a new quick search
  feature called the HUD, some new privacy settings, a few tweaks to the
  Unity interface, and more.
  The HUD Makes Finding Menu Items Super Easy

  Have you ever been in a situation where you're using a program, and
  want to do something specific that you know is in the menus, but you
  just don't know where? The new HUD solves that problem.
  Despite its being an LTS release, there aren't a ton of huge changes
  in Ubuntu 12.04, though the HUD is easily enough to get us upgrading
  as soon as possible.

Nothing all that compelling, but Ubuntu 12.04, with an alternate
desktop, is still looking like the best option for prior Ubuntu users.
