    Will you be upgrading to Lucid when the toolchain is uploaded?

    As the title says, will you be upgrading to Lucid (or what's of it at the time) when the toolchain gets uploaded on November 5th?

    I know I will, since I'm pretty much insane .

    i might... not real sure.

    really wish the repos were faster. currently trying to upgrade my main box from kubuntu 9.04 to 9.10 4.5 hours later its still getting new packages only 50% done 535 of 1147 dl speed of 13.2KB/s

    every other place i can download at 500KB/s up to 1.2MB/s its rather pathedic and been like this for at least a month, and im not the only one noticing the slow d/l speed from ubuntu
    Still learning linux after using it for years

    No. Since I'm not a toolchain hacker, there's not going to be much worth testing before UDS.

    1. This is probably due to the rush of new users leading up to the release.
    2. You should try this.

    Oh, and I will definitely be upgrading on November 5th

    From Dapper forward I have started as soon as I could--I like seeing the process from first upload to last--Can't wait to see how the Lynx works out!!!

    Re: Will you be upgrading to Lucid when the toolchain is uploaded?

    From what I've heard the toolchain modifications should be less aggressive this time around due to it being an LTS, so I may upgrade shortly after the toolchain is uploaded. I upgraded sometime near alpha 1 for 9.10 and had no issues. (Your mileage may vary, of course)

    Me too, cant start early enough. Mind you this 2 weeks in between are rough, I guess it's like a druggie with withdrawls.

    This for me, since I do *a lot* of things I like to keep a watch over bugs that directly affect me, that way when the release comes around hopefully they should all be fixed.

    I have decided to accept a position on the development team of a smaller distro so unfortunately I won't have much time to join the fun this time around. I do hope the rest of you have a nice and trouble free ride though.
    On strike during the Oneiric cycle due to ungratefulness of Ubuntu.
