Upgraded to Ubuntu10.04

GNOME is elegant!

GNOME Ubuntu 10.04

KDE Plasma, Cool Widgets

KDE Kubuntu 10.04

Ah! Well its been ages already since I’ve been trying to upgrade to “Lucid Lynx” from “Keramic Koala“!

I downloaded the alternate disc and the desktop disc as well. But none seemed to upgrade my existing Ubuntu.

It kept asking for a disc (as in to insert it etc) which I was running the installer from [Sad situation. I know! Its even worse than being in a situation where you need to download a Wifi-Driver From the internet to make the Wifi Work! :O]!

To try it I wrote a DVD with Ubuntu-10.04-Desktop-amd64.iso and even installed it on a bootable USB Drive. Its fun, just plug and boot and even offers a persistence for documents.

Anyway.. I kept on telling myself that already I’ve downloaded around two Diskettes totaling about 1.4Gigs and then if I use the “Update Manager” to Upgrade to 10.04 then it’ll be a total waste of already applied effort and network bandwidth, but having a Fun-Unlimited InterNet Connection I thought.. Y NOT! ๐Ÿ˜€ and so I switched to Upgrade “frame-of-mind”! The Upgrade Manager is very robust and starts every time for the the same state where it left or had to abort because of limited connectivity. It was interactive and finally after 3 hours the new Ubuntu was up and running.

I must tell you, its amazing. Its even all the more beautiful and works just great. Initially I had some skepticism about its performance though but ๐Ÿ™‚ it got back to being awesome again.

Soon once I was logging in and saw under “sessions” .. it was KDE. I think as I was using K3B and other KDE packages some initial files must have got downloaded I logged in but couldn’t see the task-bar even. I had to download the KDE-Basepackages to make it work. Now I have Kubuntu and Ubuntu both in my system. Take a look! ๐Ÿ˜€
