In this release web integration is featured heavily. Your OS can integrate will all kinds of web services. Seems very cool :)

I've been delaying formatting my laptop to install Ubunto for a month. Now I'm glad I'm lazy.

For some reason ubunto is depleting my battery 2 times faster than windows 7.. right now it's only lasting 50 mins.. Most likely I'll have to reformat the laptop to use w7 again. It's such a major inconvenient.

I don't think it does. From what I've read it works, except for the store and champion select, thus making you unable to enter games.

LoL uses a VERY weird combo of programs for installation and lobby interface, so it's one of the harder games to "emulate".

Edit: I stand corrected. It's amazing how compatible Linux can be :o

Ah, still bad performance in game though. But that's AMD's and Nvidia's drivers' fault.
I hear that Intel's integrated GPUs have good Linux drivers though, so games might run pretty well (for the amount of performance the GPUs have) on such machines.

I don't use Ubuntu on my main PC atm and I've only been using Unity so far.
I wanna try LXDE. It looks good, but a little barebones.
Xfce looks a little interesting, but I don't know too much about it.
I know very little about KDE except for some screenshots I've seen.

Look for battery fixes. I've heard others having trouble with it and I think it's just a case of the laptop misreading the battery or something.
Bumblebee might also be worth installing(don't know too much about it though). It enables the use of both integrated graphics and non-integrated to work together (Intel integrated GPU+some Nvidia GPU for example).
