My experience ...
Have switched laptop and desktop computers to Ubuntu 11.10, 32-bit.
Laptop was fine. Hiccup with desktop ... booted CD live system fine,
but install stalled part way. Tried stand-alone install - that worked
Couple of surprises. Desktop 11.04 said graphics was not up to scratch
for "Unity" and ran Gnome instead. However, 11.10 runs Unity without
problems. Scribus is at a watershed ... has a new file format which,
of course, cannot be read by older versions, and it cannot save a file
in the old format.
I've yet to find if the desktop on the desktop system is stable. In
11.04, occasionally the windows would go haywire for 20-30 secs. The
problem did not occur on the laptop.
Skype is a bit odd. It won't run from the unity launcher - currently
running it from the command line. Installation was a bit peculiar too
- package manager said it wasn't found, yet gave me an "install"
button ... which worked!
