Ubuntu 12.10 to feature Linux kernel 3.5 or 3.6

UDS-Q is an interesting event in progress at-the-moment, generating exciting news, plans and objectives that are to probably land/materialize in the Quantal development cycle.

Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal is to probably feature the Linux kernel 3.5 or 3.6 (RC x), depending on how the 3.5 version will be received by the developers, furthermore, there is another possibility to ship Linux kernel 3.6 release candidate (3, 4, 5, etc), action that is to shortly be followed by the landing of 3.6 stable release (via the Update Manager).

Another interesting approach is how the kernel-related upgrade from Precise (an LTS version) to Quantal Quetzal will be organized, meaning users will probably keep the Precise kernel in the upgrade.
