Based on this I gave it a try too.  Installed it in Virtualbox.  First 
thing I noticed was how much quicker than 11.10 it was to boot and shut 
down.  Seeing as how boot times have been regressing since 10.04, this 
was a pleasant surprise.  I'm still using Ubuntu Lucid on my desktop and 
can't tolerate Unity or Gnome Shell.  Xubuntu 11.10 had some minor 
issues on my hardware (in addition to the slower startup and shut down 
times) that prevented me from adopting it but 12.04 might be just the 
thing to move me to the next LTS.
