Ubuntu 14.10 expectations

There is no doubt Ubuntu and its siblings Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Lubuntu is one of the most popular Linux distributions. It became synonym to Linux to many, though Ubuntu is not only a Linux distribution.

New versions of Ubuntu family come out every six months, April and October each year. Every forth of them, released in April on even year, is a "long-term support" version. It means users get updates for their LTS systems longer than for non-LTS. The current version of Ubuntu 14.04 is LTS. It is so stable that many Ubuntu derivatives like Linux Mint and Zorin decided to remain on 14.04 base and not upgrade it until the next LTS version.

However, it is not so obvious that Ubuntu 14.10 will be worse than 14.04. It will come out on the 23rd of October. That is why I decided to make a little poll for my readers. There are two questions:
1. Are you waiting for Ubuntu 14.10 release?
2. Are you planning to update/upgrade/install Ubuntu 14.10 on your computer?

The poll is now open, and I will announce its results early October.
