Re: [OCLUG-Tech] safety level of upgrading ubuntu 12.10 to 13.04?

I'm running Mint here, which is an Ubuntu derivative, and performed not one, not two but five dist-upgrade of the same installation. Some were smoother than others, but for the most part, they worked.

The same harddisk (and the installating) has been in four different physical system (including a MacBook Pro), and worked out of the box--first boot--everytime. I love Linux. :D

Does this explain where your recently freecycled 30GB hard drives came from? :)

last night, i threw caution to the winds and just ran a
"dist-upgrade" on my ubuntu 12.04 system to bring it up to 12.10. and,
amazingly, it seemed to work fine.

so i figured i could do it all over again, and go from 12.10 to
13.04 and, based on what i read, that would involve running simply:

$ sudo do-release-upgrade

anyone done this and can warn me whether i have anything to worry
about? the transition from 12.04 to 12.10 was amazingly painless.
