Re: 3.9 is here...
I've been running a development version of Ubuntu for three years and I see commands posted on this site every day that I haven't seen before. My suggestion is that you exit this thread and scroll to the bottom of the Ubuntu +1 root forum and copy the list of moderators for this section. In my opinion you can trust just about anything they have to say. There are also a lot of other long term linux users on this forum that know just as much as the moderators. The OP of this thread is one of them. So if you stick around you will get to know who has it going on. In addition Google Search is a good place to start finding answers to your questions. Usually you will end up on a Wiki or back on this Site somewhere, but there are other Ubuntu sites with good info. In any case the reason most of us in this section install alternate kernels is because we want to. So far the price has been lower and the experience more productive than going to a movie. If you back-up your home directory you have nothing to lose that a clean install won't fix.
