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

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.
