    No GNOME 3.14, instead a mixture of GNOME 3.10 & 3.12?

      There was a reasoning for this. Apparently GNOME 3.14 came out after the 14.10 feature freeze. But in any case, you're welcome to grab it from PPA if I'm not mistaken.

        More interesting will be all the forum comments when all the RadeonSI users start experiencing https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=79980 . :-(

        There are a couple guys trying to bi-sect the bug, but they haven't succedded yet.

          Yeah the main advantages over 14.04 LTS are the newer hardware support (Xserver 1.16 with better GLAMOR 2D accel, Mesa 10.3, Linux 3.16 etc.) but some new upstream versions are also welcomed like VLC 2.2 with VDPAU & VA-API support out of the box.

            This is happening again?

            I had my 7850 about a week ago, and I recall it being fine on 3.17 (fine as in no repeated GPU crashes; had a random GPU crash once though). Had to RMA my card again though so I can't actually test it now.

            Was just trying to decide if I should use open-source drivers or fglrx with a fresh 14.10 install; guess I know which to choose for now.

              With the hardware enablement stack you can get the backported kernel and xorg onto your LTS, too.

                I've been using 14.10 at home since alpha.
                Nvidia (blob from xorg-edgers ppa), DE - mate.
                It has been stable and fast all the time.

                  My favorite part of LTS releases. Once the click packages allow apps to updated as well, life will be great in LTS land.

                    How is mate on Ubuntu? Does it play well if you have Mate and Unity installed at the same time?
