Hi, I installed Ubuntu 6.06 several months ago and have been really happy. I don't generally download distributions as I have a 3GB monthly bandwidth limit. I got Ubuntu 6.10 (edgy) with this month's Linux Format (issue 88) and at first when I inserted the disk I couldn't update via synaptic because it showed that everything was updated.
Out of curiosity I mounted the ISO image which was on the DVD and saw whether I could run it through Qemu, before I got to that I saw an icon "distro-upgrade" or something similar to that. To my astonishment when I clicked it it updated
. Now I'm pretty happy with my Edgy and it kept most of my previously installed applications. However my brother did a clean install from this distribution from the same disk and now he has got lots of KDE applications such as:
and probably another 20 more...why is this ? (He has the Gnome desktop and it is Ubuntu not Kubuntu).
