Ubuntu 12.04

Tomorrow's World was a show on BBC TV about innovations and tech stuff and I thought a good name for our computing and tech section.

Ubuntu 12.04

For those of you who are Ubuntuheads and are thinking of upgrading to 12.04, here's my advice - wait.

I'm in the process of upgrading right now, and it's taken the better part of a day so far (with still a couple of hours to go). Everyone and their uncle is hitting that server at the moment.

EDIT: In fact, I'd advise at this moment not to do it - I have a problem or two now that the upgrade has finished - ones I wasn't expecting at all. I'll spend the next couple of hours screaming at the screen and let you know what's happening.

What problems have you got? 12.04 Studio is fine so far, although the servers where a nightmare!

I've got a very temperamental sidebar. It's OK if I set it to permanent display (which I don't want) but it has a mind of its own otherwise. Most of the time, it's very shy and won't appear when I move the mouse cursor to the extreme left. Sensitivity setting seems to do nothing to help.

I can't really help there, not only do I keep mine fully visible, I also can't replicated the problem at this end!

Good luck!

I'm waving goodbye to Windows and going with Ubuntu.

One of the many available versions of the Linux Operating System. Microsoft's Windows and Apples Mac OS are the other main contenders but you can't legally download and share either of those two.

I'm loving Ubuntu 12.10 so far.

I upgraded and then kept having boot problems, so I downgraded again. Not sure what the problem was - maybe my laptop's just too old to handle it, or not fast enough or something.

I'm sticking with 11.10 until I get a new laptop I think.

Ubuntu is great. It's my favourite operating system.
