In Pictures: 10 things we love about Ubuntu 13/5 things we hate

Here are 10 things we love about Ubuntu 13 and 5 things we hate

If I'm a Windows user sitting down at a Linux machine for the first time, the first thing that jumps out at me is that there's a column of icons to the left of the screen, instead of at the bottom where I would expect a launcher bar to be on a PC or Mac. The power button is at the top right instead of the bottom left. This is different from both the PC and the Mac. Moving the launcher bar and power buttons to familiar locations would make the desktop more approachable for Windows and Apple users.

LIFEBOOK UH574

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
