Re: Update procedure for newbie non-geek
It might be a little unpopular advice in this part of the town,
but if you are a newbie, I think it might be better not to upgrade to 12.04 right now. People are still learning the ropes on the new release, and it seems there are lots of problems with something not working/going wrong after going to 12.04.
I would upgrade to 11.10. That being said, it is also true, you never learn linux, until you tinker with your computer, fix things that are not running. So, if you want to do that, then its totally worth it.
