View Full Version : [ubuntu] Update Right Away or Wait?

February 25th, 2010, 09:24 AM
For those using the current LTS release in a server (Ubuntu Server 8.04), what are your plans when 10.04 comes out within a month or two? Will you update right away, or hold off to let time pass and potential bugs be ironed out? Maybe you'll wait a week or two, or even play it really safe and wait a month or two? 8.04 is very stable is such, so is there no real rush?

I'm interested in what other people are planning with the release drawing nearer.

I have a "test box" I always run new releases on first, simulate upgrades, etc. To verify what works, what's broke and what damage the upgrade will do to a previous release and my custom configs & settings. Then based on my own opinion, I decide when it is best for me to upgrade and such.

And ALWAYS backup your system first!
