10.04 "Lucid" to 12.04 "Precise" [SOLVED]

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello, what I would like to know is in a month and a half when Ubuntu 12.04 LTS "Precise Pangolin" is released and I do a direct upgrade to it from 10.04 LTS "Lucid Lynx" through the Update Manager. Will it keep all of my programs, aside from what packages are removed and updated etc.? Thank you in advance.

Yes.

it keeps everything, it is just like a normal update only it updates the entire system. You might run into problems, they can all be fixed but at times it is a bit difficult. I've done upgrades in Ubuntu from some crazy base systems (9.10 to 11.10) so it is possible. You are doing a small update, which might go hitch free.
