Late last week, I decided to upgrade two of my PCs from Ubuntu’s v6.10 (Edgy Eft) to the beta release of v7.04 aka Fiesty Fawn. Now while I have mentioned before that I have “tech-tendencies” but not nearly as tech savvy as many of you, I found the upgrade process to be extremely easy. Better yet, as the OS was doing its thing, I was able to continue surfing the internet and do other work. The entire upgrade process took about 40 minutes and to my surprise – given my experiences with other operating systems – everything was working as expected. And now with almost a week under my belt, I have not experienced any issues with this beta release. So far, I have to say that I am very impressed. I like having the latest and greatest release, but normally in this situation you hope for the best, but expect the worse. And so far (knock, knock, knock) all is great!
