I always look forward to the new releases. If it's April or October, it must be upgrade time.
Natty Narwhal (11.04) seems really splendid. Why am I not surprised. 🙂 :up:
Here is a repost of a comment I made in the Kubuntu/Ubuntu Linux users group:
Some upgrade updates from here:
the upgrade was absolutely uneventful. He likes the non-Unity Gnome called Ubuntu Classic. There are a few very minor changes in Gnome, nothing major. Still lovely as ever.
the upgrade was fine, but I was upgrading from a customized Lubuntu (LXDE) installation, and the desktop got a little messy after the upgrade. I decided I was tired of the LXDE anyway, so I did a fresh reinstall of Ubuntu Natty. I have the "/home" on a separate partition anyway, so a reinstall doesn't take long. After the reinstall, I'm trying Unity again after not liking it the first time. It's becoming quite nice. Might keep it.
My honkin' desktop:
It's Debian 7.0 (Wheezy), so the releases are "rolling" instead of "incremental". Upgrades are constant and a little at a time. It's a smooth and beautiful thing. I've heard rumor that Ubuntu is considering rolling releases in the future. Whatever. Both methods seem to work OK.
And that's the way it is. Lovely! :heart:
