I've decided that since LQ is generous enough to offer this space and since I presently have some time to devote to such endevours That I would write a Blog about Life in Ubuntu 6.04 (Dapper Drake).
A quick bit of background first.
I have been using Linux for many years and Ubuntu since 5.04
The upgrade path I took to dapper was editing /etc/apt/sources.list
and then apt-get dist-upgrading (in init 1).
