Should I upgrade from Lucid to Precise?
Few years ago I put Lucid on my mother's Lenovo G550 laptop and she has been happy with it so far. However, as the support for Lucid will end next spring I am thinking whether I should upgrade it to Precise. There are two problems. First of all, my mother lives in a different country and I have only a remote access to her laptop. So the only way to upgrade is to run the Update Manager with some uncertainty about the result and inability to fix anything with a fresh install if required. Another problem is that the interface has changed drastically since Lucid, which could pose a problem for my mother who started using a computer only a couple of years ago. I just wonder what people think about it and whether anyone could share some personal experiences?
