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

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.


You misunderstood me. I am not saying the messed up upgrade is good - I'm saying that the fact that I can now do a fresh install is good. That is something completely different. A fresh install is much better from a reviewer's perspective, as it creates a much more objective environment.
