What's the best way to upgrade to the new edition of Ubuntu? 10.10 comes out soon and I would like to avoid the whole back up files, reinstall, fiddle about with codecs etc.
Personally, I prefer clean installs. They are easy if you have a /home, but that still leaves you with installing everything afterwards.
There are quite a few folks that I have seen that swear by upgrading via Update Manager. Hopefully they'll chime in with some good upgrade advice.
Best of luck,
Thank you for your contributions. "So long and thanks for the fish!"
