    While that makes 100% sense and would be my first choice, it is not really an option here due to lack of access to the machines. Also, the server room (aka poorly ventilated broom closet) really...

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 9.10 beta install

    In Ubuntu, if you just keep installing the updates as normal, you will have the final release some time in the week before the iso images are available. No reinstall needed.
