Ubuntu 14.10: You will probably just stick with LTS

After trying out the 14.10 Final Beta I came you realize that this release will probably be the most boring Ubuntu release in several years.

It is so boring that even the wallpaper remains the same.

The Unity desktop environment gets some patches, they bump the package versions in the repos and dump in a newer kernel. Even most of the Gnome stack remains on 3.10 (who knows there might be 3.8 packages still floating around).
Ubuntu Gnome gets 3.12, one release behind upstream as usual and Kubuntu bumps KDE to 4.14 and separates Plasma 5 to a technical preview release.

The only reason for installing 14.10 is if you need drivers for your super new laptop. My tip is that you stay with 14.04 LTS and use PPA’s for the apps you absolutely need newer versions of.

It kinda seems like the entire workforce is focused on patching Ubuntu Phone RTM, and that’s okay.. but only if Meizu manages to deliver the MX 4 Ubuntu Phone.
