Re: Install Ubuntu on Eee PC 1015PX (*over* Win7 Starter)
Unity in Ubuntu 11.10 isn't bad, it's just different. Quite good once you've spent some time with it and taken advantage of some of its good features.
You can certainly update to 12.04. If this is a very fresh install of 11.10 the update should go perfectly well. Press Control-Alt-T to bring up a terminal and run this command:
At the top of the window you'll be told that Ubuntu 12.04 is now available, and you can click the Upgrade button to upgrade.
sudo update-manager -d
I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
