Somebody in team 2 in the dojo had a notebook that was booting windows 8
and running ubuntu in a vm because they didn't want to be guinea pigs for
secure boot on ubuntu. Sorry that I'm so terrible with names I can't
remember who it was. Anyway, I thought you could use this that recently
came up in an internal list here at Canonical:

So, 12.10 should have you safely outside of guinea pig territory already.
If you need the LTS, wait for 12.04.2 (2013-01-31).
