Ubuntu Server Community, You Rule

A few days ago Stuart Langridge and I upgraded a machine from 8.04 LTS to 10.04 LTS and then from 10.04 LTS to 12.04 LTS, all over SSH. Both upgrades ran without a hitch. We simply ran do-release-upgrade and everything worked great.

Upgrading from a four-year old installation to a current installation with no problem was impressive. For everyone who contributed to making the magic happen, thank-you!

    Awesome, would like to see if the Desktop edition goes as smoothly. Windows has had something similar starting from Windows 1.01 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vPnehDhGa14

    we deploy 200+ Ubuntu server boxes in our production env, and it works well as a whole. if the ubuntu LST server’s support time goes longer, it will be much better 😉

    Nice to see it work, but curious if that’s why the Severed Fifth site is offline. :)
