How Difficult is it to Compile and Run Robert Nelson's Ubuntu 13.04, V3.12.x branch?

Not! Just for info, especially for newbies (which I am regarding linux kernels). I went through the process of downloading and compiling
Robert Nelson’s Ubuntu 13.04 (v3.12.x branch (better usb and ethernet)), and it was very seamless and straightforward with no
glitches. What a nice piece of software, one of the cleanest installations I have encountered (although again, I am a newbie here).
It connected through the ssh on the ethernet first try. Thanks Robert; highly appreciated.
