Ubuntu 12.10

After a busy six month release cycle, we can all step back and look at the result of our efforts with Ubuntu 12.10. Many people from all around the world, from all walks of life, each bringing their own passion and talent, all contributed to this release. Thank-you for your wonderful contributions; if it wasn’t for our wonderful community, Ubuntu would not be what it is today, both in terms of technology and awareness.

Now we have the release out the door, in the coming weeks you will be hearing more from the community team about our focus and goals for 13.04; you can read a summary I posted a little back, but we will be following up with plans for UDS and our efforts to continue to grow our community, evolve and grow Ubuntu, and make Ubuntu a fun place to spend your time and contribute.

In the meantime though, everyone enjoy the release, and take the time to celebrate in whatever way you enjoy. Thanks, everyone!

    Hi Jono,

    I downloaded the 12.10 iso yesterday. A new ‘feature’ is the option to donate to the Ubuntu project before downloading. I personally welcome a donate option on the Ubuntu site. And it’s a nice idea to distribute the credits for different goals.

    However, why do you want me to feel a pang of guilt when I opt out at that time? I guess it’s meant as a joke, but changing the t-shirt icon to a skull-icon struck me as reproachful.

    Again, a donate and/or sponsor option (however small) is good. But maybe you could have a look at the way the Mint team does it? By publishing the monthly stats with each individual donator/sponsor they make you feel good / proud to be part of it.

    Don’t make it feel like a requirement before downloading but my individual choice (and put it on the frontpage).

    Kind regards and thanks for all the passion and hard work you and the team put into the project.
