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

Sorry, I could't go any further with this than when you say that an upgrade install screwing up your system is "not a bad thing".

That's a terrible attitude.


It was too much trouble to read through the comments, wasn't it? Like I said earlier: "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."

Totally valid, if you'd review, like, Windows. But with a Linux distro one should expect a working update/upgrade path, since this is one of the major features of a Linux distro. I would never use a Linux distro which doesn't have a working upgrade path, and I don't care if it's under development. They started from Debian, they should keep learning from it.
