Ubuntu 8.04=>8.10 upgrade

Steps to upgrade from Ubuntu 8.04 to 8.10:

Menu: System>Administration>Software Sources>Updates

Click the "Release upgrade" drop down menu and choose "Normal Release". Click OK to close the configuration window.

Now manually run the Update Manager and you will see the 8.10 upgrade is available. No need to backup anything. Very smooth process. Just make sure you have enough disk space to download all new packages. 5G should be enough. My total upgrade only needs two clicks to confirm the replacement of few config file under /etc I've changed. That's it. Total progress pretty much depends on your Internet speed to download 1000+ new packages...

ByeBye Babson

Really a post I should write months earlier. I've graduated from Babson full-time MBA program in May, 2008. Now I am working in a promising startup in San Francisco area as Sr. Product Manager.

It's a pity I was not be able to launch a startup with my pal at Babson before the graduation. But I am happy to be still within the startup world. Just make a one-step plan a two-step one...

Thank you for visiting this blog! I may not update this blog since my Babson journey is over.

It's better than email...
