Think before you update!

Postby Rhakios » Thu Oct 13, 2011 5:45 pm

Which I didn't do tonight.
Having got home and sat down at my computer, I thought I'd check for updates, although apt-get update didn't take too long to run, there were some 10 packages to be upgraded (43.3MB). Okay, answered Y to apt-get upgrade, and it's still downloading 20 minutes later. It's like flippin' dial-up.
Do you see what I did there? I forgot that today is an Ubuntu release day. Bu99er!
Bye, Rhakios

For certain you have to be lost to find the places that can't be found. Elseways, everyone would know where it was

Was talking with a chum yesterday and after updating to the latest Ubuntu he installed Fedora over it. Seems he had a falling out with Unity.

A lot of people seem to be having a fall out with 11.10. Is it just unity causing it? I know I fell out of love with Kubuntu with 11.10, but since I think I'm the only person who was using it... :lol:

And it's also why my netbook hasn't been "upgraded".
i5 4440 3.1Ghz, Asus H87M-E motherboard, 8GB DDR3, 2GB DDR5 nVidia card, 2x500GB Seagate hd, Coolermaster 750W PSU running Mint 16 MATE and Win7

eeepc 1015PX, 1.66 Ghz Intel atom processor, 2 GB DDR3, 320 GB hd, Mint 14 MATE. Fan needs fixing.

I like Unity, and it seems to be maturing nicely.
