My kernel is shown as
is this the original kernel for 12.04 ?
I had forgotten that I quit Ubuntu a while back because of the way they would sneak a new kernel in with other, more routine updates, and then I would be frustrated with the advice to only instal a new kernel in a new clean instal. After a lot of consideration I decided to go with Ubuntu again, and when finishing the instal I see that there are 250 Mb od updates. I thought, "certainly they wont put kernels on top of kernels". Was I wrong?
