comment Linux (Ubuntu 12.10) starts up, but the main menu on the left side, and the pictograms at the upper right corner, do not show up
yes but remember this means moving to the open source drivers which in some ways cripple your graphics performance :)

comment How can I install a newer kernel?
I suppose the question is more like if there is a ppa that has a kernel to update the one shipped with Ubuntu. So it will have all patches and so on. Not the mainline kernel where the graphics drivers, etc won't compile for.

comment How do I know if my system is capable of playing 24bit/96kHz sound?
also cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#2 | grep bits will tell you the bits supported. Although more than the bits and sample rate, your internal noise is more of an issue.
