    I'll upgrade. I figure that, if for some reason the upgrade goes wrong, I can always to a clean install over it, but if I start out with a clean install, there's really no way I can revert it if I change my mind afterwards.

    Re: 12.10-What Will You Do?

    I've been using Ubuntu since Breezy Badger. I'll probably just update because it's easier and I'm lazy. After using Ubuntu for 6 years the novelty of installing "The New Version" has worn off. I don't want to do more work than I have to. I'll only do a clean install if things don't work properly after the upgrade.

    Re: 12.10-What Will You Do?

    Nothing for now.

    I still use Ubuntu 10.04, and in the past have always done new installs with my dedicated home partition brought forward. Next will be Xubuntu 12.04, from a fresh install and syncing my data back from a backup.

    I think I will stay with LTS releases with backports and PPA's on my primary OS from now on, and share a new /data partition for hoots, with other installs.

    Switch distro

    Seriously though, I always just do a clean install to avoid having any issues. It's not that much of a hassle, and definitely worth it if you really want an upgrade.

    Even though I did a successful upgrade from 11.04 to 11.10, when 12.04 reached RC, I did a clean install. For 12.10, I'm likely to move to Xubuntu. My laptop isn't getting any younger .

    On my laptop, probably an upgrade. My server has been upgraded already. I have another computer that I'm going ot put Quantal on, but I am unsure how yet. I haven't touched it for over a year, so it will depend on the state I left it in.

    Re: 12.10-What Will You Do?

    Of course, I'm very likely going to do a fresh install about a month after its release. But, I'll also keep 12.04 around for a while since it is an LTS. It does suck that these releases happen in the middle of college semesters, especially if classes are really heavy.

    But, yup. I do intend to upgrade on the desktop about a month after the stable release, with a clean install as I always do. That does mean I have to back up my firefox bookmarks, my icon sets, everything that's in my Ubuntu home folder and not my second hard drive, stuff like that. But, clean install is always the best.

    Re: 12.10-What Will You Do?

    When running multiple installations it's often difficult to vote.

    • I'm already running a development version of Kubuntu 12.10 on my desktop.
    • On my laptop both Ubuntu and Kubuntu 12.04 will probably stay.
    • On my netbook, I will most certainly upgrade Lubuntu to 12.10 as there are some great looking improvements on the way.

    However, as these threads seem to focus on Ubuntu, rather than one of the derivatives, I'll vote for keeping the current version.
