Ubuntu 12.04 LTS : review

I tried to use Ubuntu 12.04 from last week.

For the total view, I think 12.04 is the most stable version except default desktop. This meaning is that if you will clean-install from zero then the system is so stable.

I tried to update from 11.10 to 12.04. The updating was completed. But it was not stable especially x-windows system. Usually, I work on ubuntu and intelli-j. So, x-windows system's problem is critical for me ^^;;

Many sites explain how to change rom. So, I don't do this. This time, I got friend's help. Because, the rom flashing too is provided for Windows or Linux. I have linux machines but it has many risks for flashing rom with linux machine.

I thought that I should wait for real release for my phone. The first release was last april for US version. And, I waited almost 1 month. However, it could not get new release. This me…
