This is something I am going to have to deal with soon.  I am currently thinking U12.04 64 bit.  Vaguely considering Mint...

I will be doing a new install as much as I hate all the work it is going to take to get back to as smooth a setup as I have now (U10.10 and Trinity before it was Trinity :-)).

Peter, the screaming sysadmin won here :-).  Been bit badly doing "upgrades" too many times.

Any words of wisdom, pointers or anything for someone doing this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks & take care, Vikki / WV9K.

I have a system at home running Kubuntu 10.10 (maverick)  running Trinity before it was actually Trinity (3.5.12 - packages are all *-kde3).  What is the best way to update this to a more modern version of Ubuntu, say 12.04 LTS?

Same question for my work system, but it's at 11.04/Natty Narwhal with Trinity 3.5.13.

My days as a Solaris admin tell me (scream at me) "don't do an upgrade, do a fresh install!", but I think I'd rather not.
