...if you have near-modern Intel graphics.   Everything slugs down to a 
choppy mess.  Compiz eats up an entire core.  I'm assuming it's a driver 
issue since it looks like Ubuntu migrated from the official 3D drivers 
(Mir controversy?) & since there's a revision-specific glib dependency 
there's no real way to install the official drivers.  Seriously....every 
fucking april & october this shit happens.  At least it doesn't leave 
you with a broken install like every other time there's an upgrade on a 
machine w/ a true proprietary driver.
