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

The ease of upgrade of Debian systems is much more down to the packages than apt itself.

That's what I meant in my post. It seems that the packages in Debian usually are more updated and work better with each other. It does have the update manager in it now, but I don't really use it. Ubuntu's main and restricted work very well together, but sometimes the Universe and Multiverse packages become out of date and don't work in newer releases of the distribution.
