I just installed Ubuntu 13.10. Sadly, after only a few minutes I realized that it is completely useless. Slow, buggy, ugly…and just about everything crashes! I figured a software update would fix stuff, but even that "crashed unexpectedly..". I remember Ubuntu as the distro that offered me not only a place to learn Linux, but also an environment suitable for common home and office tasks.
Now, it reminds me more of the early versions of Windows 98..
