Upgrading Major Ubuntu Releases Question
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 30, 2013
As new major Ubuntu LTS releases (such as Ubuntu 13.04 LTS) become available, do I need to perform a direct upgrade to them from within Ubuntu CE, or do I need to hold off for the official Ubuntu CE release of each major upgrade?
I'm definitely willing to wait if need be (since it'd probably be more stable to wait anyway) I'm just curious which is the best route to go?

This almost certainly belongs in recurring discussions, but here's my ha'penny's worth nonetheless:
I've been using 11.04 with Unity for about a week now and like countless others before me I have found it to be buggy to the point of frustration. It is, possibly, a step in the right direction though. Working properly it would be very simple to use - especially for beginners and those just wanting to do everyday stuff. In fact - it would be perfect for my current purpose, which is preparing a laptop for a couple of kids to do their homework on. Doing more slightly more advanced tasks, I found it a bit tricky to get used to as I can't see all my programs where I expect to find them. It's just different - I'm sure the developers have advanced users in mind. It's Linux after all...
My latest thinking, however, is this: When looking up Ubuntu to download it, ubuntu.com exclusively advertises Natty. It looks slick and impressive as always so you download it. Now I'm a moderately experienc

Will Ubuntu ever have big leaps between their versions, or will constantly evolve in small steps, considering the time between the releases?
Changes in Ubuntu releases decided by the Ubuntu Technical Board
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 19, 2013
In yesterday’s meeting we covered two of the topics from Mark’s proposal to the Technical Board: Reducing the length of support for our regular (non-LTS) releases The rationale here is that it’s costing a lot of time to maintain all those releases for 18 months. It’s also causing a lot of load on the SRU [...]
How will upgrading to newer Ubuntu releases work on Ubuntu tablets?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 28, 2013
I've been looking at the Ubuntu tablets (http://www.ubuntu.com/devices/tablet) but I'm wondering how upgrading is going to work. I assume that the tablet will run a LTS support release, but nevertheless, when it comes times to upgrade to a newer version of Ubuntu, will it be as problematic as upgrading a desktop or laptop? When I used Ubuntu I normally just did a fresh install, but I don't know if that will be an (easy) option on a tablet, unless I could install it from USB.
Monthly Ubuntu Releases Proposed
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 9, 2011
Found some interesting articles on slashdot.org whether it may get implemented or not.
An anonymous reader writes
"Scott James Remnant, the former Ubuntu Developer Manager at Canonical and current Ubuntu Technical Board leader, has proposed a new monthly release process for Ubuntu Linux. He acknowledges that with the six month releases there are features that end up landing way too soon, leaving them in a sour state for users. With his monthly proposal, Remnant hopes to relieve this by handling alpha, beta, and normal releases concurrently. It's unknown whether Canonical will accept the policy at this time."

update grub2 with 2 ubuntu releases
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 27, 2010
Is there a way to have grub2 managing two installations from ubuntu on the same pc ?
I have two partitions, one with karmic, another with lucid. Grub is detecting automatically the two or more kernels, but assigning them to the same root partition !
Is there a way to make update-grub, detecting lucid kernel, and assigning it automatically to lucid partition, and the same for karmic ?
It seems, that os-prober, detects the lucid installation from karmic, and print the correct corresponding partition on the screen, but in the config file, the root partition is the wrong one, and os-prober doesn't detect karmic...

Wireless Worked on 3 Ubuntu Releases, Suddenly Dead, HW failure?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 6, 2010
I'm not getting a response over on the Ubuntu WIreless Forum (which looks like it's getting slammed with questions), so thought I'd come over here. Could I trouble you good people to look at my post over there
and weigh in on whether or not you believe I have a hardware failure on my hands? As I state in the post, I ran fine from the original installed version, 8.10, through 2 upgrades (to 9.04 and 9.10). Now none of them work (When the problems began I re-installed each of them in turn in order to test).
Insights appreciated. Thank you.
