Now just how hard is it to upgrade Ubuntu Linux from, say, version 10.04 to a newer one (11.10)?
Well I had this VMWare virtual machine that was built with 10 and wanted to move to 11.
What did I do? Two things:
- Open the terminal
- Type 'do_version_upgrade' and press ENTER
That's all folks!
In about 30 min or so, thanks to the reasonably fast net connection, it was all DONE, signed, sealed and delivered, with just one restart at the end of the entire process.
All applications were not just left unharmed, they too were upgraded!
