I am going to do a small hardware upgrade to friend's machine at end of this week. At the moment he is using NVidia intregrated graphics, and I'll give him a Radeon 4350 HD, and I found 4*1GB RAM for 20€.
Now I am also going to suggest him to try Ubuntu. I am still not sure what would be better to recommend/install, a LTS, 13.04, or 13.10. 13.10 is my favorite option at the moment (I think I read about radeon driver got some improvements in the last time.), since I was having good experience with last betas.
Would it be better to use daily of that day, or to use offical Beta as an installation media, if we decide to give a 13.10 a try first? Also IIRC, in last betas the repositories would switch to stable automatically, after release. Is this still the case, or one has to manually change something?
Thanks in advance
