So, all the new editions of Ubuntu are available for download and you are eager to try out the latest releases. But where do you go to find all that Ubuntu goodness, especially if you are looking for one of the UI-variant editions? Not to worry, we have the links for the direct download pages for seven editions of Ubuntu gathered together into one post for your convenience!

I know WUBI is no longer supported in Ubuntu (so you can't install Ubuntu 13.04 using the Windows installer), but if I installed Ubuntu 12.10 using WUBI, can I upgrade 12.10 to 13.04 through the update manager in Ubuntu and still be able to dual boot with both Windows and Ubuntu like before?

Based on the question posed in this thread I would 'venture' to say yes...but it looks like they are not exactly recommending it. In the end the choice is up to you, but it may or may not go so well if you try it...
Upgrading from 12.10 WUBI install to 13.04

The post has been updated with links for the download pages for Edubuntu and Ubuntu Studio...

I think the now official Ubuntu Gnome will prove popular

Here is a quick look at Ubuntu GNOME 13.04 with an upgrade to GNOME 3.8 using PPAs. While not super obvious there are some small UI details that are different from the default 3.6 that came with the 13.04 release.
Those who want to upgrade to 3.8 can use the following commands in a terminal window:
- sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3
- sudo apt-get update
- sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
Adding in some of the new GNOME apps has not went too smoothly at the moment, but from what I understand they should all be in 3.10 by default. Hopefully by then they will have all the little 'kinks' worked out...

actually, a few reasons really made me delete 13.04 installations and go back to 12.04
1 - No wubi
2 - No workspaces , or at least by default, i haven't really tried to get them
3 - i had a bug about changing display brightness on my dell inspiron 5520, never had that before
4 - like all the previous versions, it uses much battery than windows. a fully charged battery doesn't last more than two hours, i was hoping to see that fixed. windows can work for 4 hours or may be more
5 - i haven't seen much changes worth the upgrade, besides 12.04 seems quite cool, 12.10 is also ok
please tell me i'm wrong about any of what i said. or let me know if any fixes were made for these bugs

The biggest thing I see working against the non-LTS releases now is the super short support period. To be honest 9 months of support almost makes it feel like more trouble than it is worth to run a non-LTS release...

Actually, I found out that wubi is availiable for Ubuntu 13.04! If you go here: http://releases.ubuntu.com/13.04, you'll see at the bottom of the page it says wubi.exe.
I used it and it works!
#12 By: Lowell Heddings, May 8th, 2013 16:10
That's weird, because the Ubuntu pages clearly say that it isn't available.
#13 By: Zakariah Halabi, May 8th, 2013 17:09
I know i saw that and I got a bit angry, then I saw wubi on the raring ringtail release page, but I thought that was for quantal, but I tried it and it works, you try.

i tried ubuntu 13.04 and had nothing but "send error reports" for just about everything

wubi is not and never was meant to be a permanent installation. It was designed for those users unwilling to partition their disk(s) until they were sure they like Ubuntu. Read here for more info from one of the developers of wubi

I am running it (64 bit) no problems here. That sucks theMike.
#19 By: theMike, May 25th, 2013 19:39
i've tried it twice and keep getting the same error messages. something has always stopped running
#20 By: Robert_Zanol, May 25th, 2013 21:53
was it plymouth? I used to get those messages. After an update I never received them again.
