Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu The recently released 10.04 version of Ubuntu is the third Long Term Support (LTS) version Canonical has released. I installed this new version on four of my laptops (2 netbooks, 1 normal laptop, 1 portable desktop replacement), and here's my impression of it.

Before upgrade, I had working 9.10. During upgrade it asked me something about config file. But it has already lost USB, so I could not use keyboard or mouse. I've tried to connect to other ports, nothing works.


I'm a bit curious as to what would cause you to lose USB during an upgrade. I don't doubt you, it's just something I have never experienced.


So I've rebooted. And it does not boot anymore. F...ing grub2. I needs to reinstall everything. Maybe this is a good moment to try different distribution.


Not really GRUB's fault that the system won't boot after a partial upgrade. I often wonder why Ubuntu doesn't us LVM by default - just think if you could take snapshot before an upgrade and easily revert it if the upgrade fails.
