I recently installed 12.10 - dual boot using Wubi. I had numerous stability problems: many sporadic, unaccounted for system errors, software that was installed and then seemed to disappear from App Launcher, etc.
Machine is new HP quad with 4 gig memory - wonderful piece of hardware - definitely no hardware problems there.
I went back to 12.04 (installed from ISO image, not Wubi) and it's rock solid - never any issues at all.
New to Linux/Ubuntu after 20 years on MS/Windows and loving it - I develop in C++ and Python - maybe will try Lazarus since I know Delphi. Would like to use the latest and greatest Ubuntu but I will not sacrifice stabilty.
Are there known stabilty problems with 12.10? Would using the standard install instead of Wubi help?
Seems a lot of users are voting down this question - not sure why since other users have confirmed problems.
