Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Just like Eugenia yesterday, I also upgraded my laptop's Ubuntu Feisty installation to Gutsy a few days ago. The upgrade process went completely awry, though, so I was forced to do a fresh install. Not a bad thing, as it gave me the opportunity to take a look at Ubuntu's soon-to-be-released Gutsy Gibbon with GNOME 2.20

Fresh install == good?!

Isn't it interesting how when Ubuntu's upgrade option goes "awry" it wasn't such a "bad thing"? If this were a Windows or Mac review it would have got a slating.

Whilst it's nice to have silver linings, a buggy upgrade installation will not help us towards the year of Linux of desktop, so please remember to be objective when required (and if necessary, critical) - just because it's a Linux distribution doesn't mean expectations should be lowered. Of course, in many other aspects of the distro, it looks like things are really coming on ;)
