The long wait for the latest stable version of Ubuntu is finally over. Now you can download your favorite UI version of Ubuntu 13.10, try out the Phone Edition, and grab a copy of the official manual using the compiled set of download links we have put together for your convenience.

I'm going to try Ubuntu just to check out the "Smart Scopes" feature. I like the software they've included, Shotwell, Inkscape, PiTiVi, Openshot, etc. One program I'd like to included and improved on is Pinta, the Linux version of Paint.net. Add ons would make it one of the better graphic programs for Linux.

Pinta is indeed an awesome photo app! MyPaint is another one. ^_^
The Ubuntu release that I am really looking forwards to is Ubuntu GNOME 14.04. ^_^
It is a real pity that the regular releases only get nine months of support now. >_<

I just checked out MyPaint's website. Thanks...

I remember writing about it because I loved the program so much. ^_^
MyPaint is an Open-Source Graphics App for Digital Painters

Don't know how I missed that one. I just installed it, I like the minimalist look of it...

after using this for a few days, ubuntu would probably attract more users if they switched the gui from the horrible black and orange to the iridescent white with the glass background seen in other features such as smart scope. i've noticed a speed increase matching debian, also.

Help please folks! I want to quietly do away with my trusty old XP Home SP3, and am looking toward Linux, rather then Windows 8. I want the 64 bit version.
The download shows 64 bit available for AMD and 32 bit i386 for Intel. What does this mean please? My XP SP3 PC has the following specs: 500 GB Seagate HDD 7200 rpm; Intel Core 2 Duo; 4 GB RAM.
How do I download the official manual from HTG? I can't find the "grab a copy of the official manual using the compiled set of download links we have put together for your convenience."

That's pretty good specs for an XP PC. You should use the AMD64 version, it works with Intel 64-bit processors too. It was named AMD64 because AMD made 64-bit processors before Intel did.

@BallyIrish - HTG does not host the manual...it is available for download from the following link. ^_^
As for the 64-bit version of Ubuntu 13.10, which desktop UI version were you looking for? If the "regular" version with Unity, then this link will work:
There are two versions available there at the moment, 12.10 LTS (Long Term Support) and 13.10 (9 Month Support). You can choose between either one and the use the drop down menu for each version to select for 64-bit. ^_^
