I see that the Ubuntu 13.04 stable version will be released around the 25th of April. I currently have Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and I am considering upgrading to 13.04. My question is can I skip over Ubuntu 12.10 or should I upgrade to 12.10 and then from it upgrade to 13.04 when its stable version is released. I have seen where Ubuntu 13.04 Beta has been released but I would rather wait for the stable version before switching.
snowpine, I am not sure if I can do a partition. Unless there is a way to partition the Ubuntu 12.04 I have, then maybe but I do not know how to do it? Several months ago I installed a WinXP plus my Ubuntu 12.04 on my PC. The XP CD was missing certain items and never was fully installed, What followws is long an boring suffice to say I have just the Ubuntu on my PC now.
wagscat123, I was unaware that one could not skip upgrades such as 12.04 to 13.04 if one was a LTS.
snowpine, If there is a way for me to create a dual boot within my PC that would allow me to dual boot from either 12.04 or 13.04, I'd like to try that otherwise I may go with upgradign to 12.10 and then 13.04?
Thanks to both of you for your assistance and guide.
I don't really understand what you're saying, but: Why not stick with stable long-term support 12.04 for a while longer, read up on basic concepts (upgrades, partitions, backups---all well-documented on the ubuntu site), and upgrade when you're feeling more confident? Is there a problem with 12.04??
