…it was seamless. It was easy. It was not scary.
My poor dad. I invited him for Fathers Day lunch. He stood out in the rain and barbecued the guinea fowl I had marinated in hot spices, rosemary, lemon juice, and olive oil (the result totally rocked, by the way). Then he hung up curtain rods, only to have to rehang them when I decided they were too high… then he had to drill a hole from my bedroom to my office. You see, my bedroom is pretty much the only room in the house that has a phone jack and electrical outlet side by side. Now that the hole has been drilled I can run the wires through the hole so that the modem can live in my office and my desktop (yeah, the dinosaur I referred to in my last post) can be hardwired to the Internet.
Yay. And dad really loved having an excuse to use the 2 foot long drill bit, I know it.
So last night I upgraded from 11.10 to 12.04. Then from 12.04 to 12.10. Then from 12.10 to 13.04. I stopped there because, well, there are no more Ubuntu versions to upload to. At least, not until October when 13.10 should be released 🙂
It was such an easy process and everything works.
I <3 Ubuntu. (though the Unity interface still bugs me. I feel like I have a layer of stuff between me and my computer. And it keeps asking if I want to install apps. Apps are for tablets. Apps are for phones.)
