Initial impression of Ubuntu 14.04

I installed Ubuntu 14.04 on my laptop yesterday and have used it enough to get an initial impression. The system runs fine, all of the hardware seems to function correctly. Compiz crashed once and unlike Xubuntu 14.04 I don’t get a system fault message about hibernation every time I start up. The message does come up after restoring the system from stand-by even though as on Xubuntu 14.04 everything seems to be working fine. This version of Ubuntu shows up with a really bad Amazon program, do yourself a favor and un-install this program the first chance you get. I get that Canonical has bills to pay, but the program just sucks. I’ll have more to post up later, but here’s a few screenshots for now:
