I just installed Ubuntu 12.10 Desktop via USB key nicely, but I don't see the Launcher? Am I missing something here? How is this possible? This OS is useless without Firefox or a web browser!

oh wow... I didn't know about that. But it doesn't bring back the launcher like how 12.04 did. – user107307 Nov 11 '12 at 22:58
