That's funny. Yeah... Ubuntu... I ran Ubuntu back in the Breezy days and have used Debian since. I got Ubuntu 12.04 today to play Steam. (unfortunately Ubuntu doesn't play nice in a chroot anymore). It's a cascading disaster. Unity is ultra-obnoxious.

I think its trying anyway but doesnt boot.  I'm downloading Ubuntu 12.10 to see if its because Ubuntu paid the piper and therefore will install on a UEFI system.
