Introducing… The Ubuntu Upgrade Wizard
If you’ve wondered how to upgrade from from 8.04 LTS or from Ubuntu 9.10 to Lucid Lynx (soon-to-be 10.04 LTS), you may find the above link useful.
It’s a little experiment in documentation built in “Choose-your-own-Adventure” fashion. I don’t mean to replace any official docs but I’d like to have comments if anyone thinks it’s useful or how to improve it.
Please note this is NOT an applications – it is only a wiki guide meant to be followed by clicking on corresponding links!
I am using this as part of a set of internal tools for support (as Canonical staff are encouraged to upgrade to beta versions during development cycles) but also as a community tool to help follow best practices.I’ve also integrated links to IRC and the Answers section of Launchpad – I believe integrating live chat and the question/answer facility may help too.
The target here is beginners but also experienced Ubuntu users that seek an easy way to help someone upgrade.
Let me know what you think.
BTW I’ve focused on 8.04LTS and 9.10 but if anyone is willing to document upgrading from the other versions using the same conventions just let me know.
