EDIT: It has been my experience that doing a distro upgrade via the Update Manager will leave you with broken apps and will uninstall some of the things you have. A fresh install is the best way. Back up your stuff ie: your Home directory to another partition or if you have one another drive....
Jeez, at least windows and OS X have no bumps in the road when it comes to upgrading

What about for people who aren't like us, who don't usually reinstall their systems? They're going to have a lot of stuff that they don't want to have to back up and put back together again. They'd just rather keep their OS "as is" and hit "upgrade" and have it work seamlessly.

It's these little things that are keeping Linux from becoming mainstream.

Go ahead and try a distro upgrade via Udate manager. Just back up your home dir first. The only things i lost was VLC and XMMS.... You can alway reinstall later... The thing is that the apps in 7.10 are newer ans "improved". I'm not being an Oger but just sharing MY personal experience. You may have different results. The Upgrade manager is supposed to have been improved. I had lots of third party stuff installed. That's probably my fault. Ubuntu is getting better with each rel;ease. I can't wait for Heron. I'll stick with that for 3 years...

Peace to you and good luck!!!

I tried to upgrade my Xubuntu via the updater thing, but it kept hanging. It's possible that it could have been due to crowded servers, and it's even more possible that it's due to my VM. But i'm talking about other peoples' troubles, too =\\

And i do agree that Ubuntu is getting much better with each release (i'm one to give credit where credit is due.) 7.10 FINALLY detected my monitor's native resolution OUT OF THE BOX !!! They do get much better very quickly; they do impress me with each release. Like i said, i can't wait to try this out on an actual PC and not a half-assed VM.
