    The upgrade process failed twice. It says that this may happen when trying to upgrade to a pre-release version of Ubuntu which I am trying to do so.

    I think that I will stick with Ubuntu 12.04.x 64 bit LTS. Seems simpler and less problematic.

    I've never tried to do an upgrade to the dev branch, sounds like a recipe for trouble. Try it again when it's actually released and it'll probably work fine.

    I'm gonna install 12.10 on my fiances computer in a few hour. Hopefully 12.10 won't result to one of those sleep-on-the-couche-period...
    This is my signature

    It's always worked for me, just takes forever. 12.04 to 12.10 took about 3 hours...

    Not at this stage of development, no.

    I upgraded from 12.04 to 12.10 Beta about a week or two ago. The upgrade process was simple and quick, and 12.10 has been excellent for me, performance-wise and otherwise. Maybe I am just extremely lucky. I am definitely extremely happy.

    I decided to stay with 12.04 on my HP desktop and go with 12.10 on my HP DV6 laptop. I like the long term support 12.04 has but my laptop has ATI discrete graphics and 12.10 runs much beeter on it.

    Two reasons why I'm not going to upgrade.
    1st. I'm a new OLD kid on the block and feel I've still a lot to learn just on the fundamental level.
    2d. Over the years I've found it's best to let the better swimmers jump into the water first. When the "ALL CLEAR" signal is given: I'll get my feet wet.

    I have an ATI discrete graphics as well; 12.10 really plays better? (i have space- i'll give it a go on another partition)


    I figured with all the jumping i have done with versions of Ubuntu this past year, since finally upgrading from Natty- that 12.04LTS (12.04.1 currently) everything is smooth and no fuss from day to day, so i may as well stick with it.

    There must be something wrong with the Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit Beta 2. I can't do an upgrade to it and I can't boot off the .ISO image file in Virtualbox or VM Ware Workstation either. I don't think that it's ready for prime time until the official release on October 18th, 2012.

    I think that I am going to stick with Ubuntu 12.04.x 64 bit LTS. Upgrading to 12.10 64 bit or 13.04 or 13.10 64 bit will be a pain in the butt and I don't want anything to break prematurely.
