Sorry, I had to make a post on this, since it is two days till RTM.
It seems to be shaping up to be an interesting release.
Radically new default theme (ZOMG window controls on the left), shiny new boot loader (Plymouth), kernel-mode setting (for some video drivers), and a improved Software Center that is actually quite usable.
Anyone planning on downloading/using it? (I already am.) More importantly, anyone planning on baking me some Ubuntu cookies?
