Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Bang on target, the new version of Ubuntu Linux is available for our downloading pleasure. Amongst various changes it sports updates to the installer, improved networking, and a new 'Mobile USB' version geared towards the blossoming netbook market. Grab a copy from the Ubuntu website, and check out Linux Format's hands-on look. Or the one at Simple Thoughts. Or the one at PolishLinux. And probably a few other websites as well.

What? A problem upgrading a Linux OS? I thought that never happened, except to Windows. From what I hear on these boards, anyway.


When's the last time anyone "upgraded" a windows OS?

I thought an "upgrade" these days was identical to a fresh install except for the license. You still lose your applications and settings and have to start over...

I think XP has a wizard for keeping settings across XP installs, but what about "upgrading" to vista...can you even do that?
