What I loved about the upgrade:
- The button!
- The warnings about low disk space at the start, and not 20 minutes into the installation
- The download speed (it took about 25 minutes to download... I didn't know my ISP could do 900kb/s!)
- After the upgrade, stuff that wasn't working on my box started working again (Picasa)
- The warning about the disk space tells you how much space you need to free up, not how much space you need free (who reads the fine print anyway?)
- There are dialog boxes in the middle of the installation. It was late at night when I started the installation, and the estimated time was 45 minutes, so I went to sleep. When I woke up there was a question waiting for me and 40 more minutes of installation time.
- My NVidia graphics adapter wasn't working after the upgrade. And installing it with apt-get didn't work either. I had to get the drivers from the NVidia web site, not an easy task when all you have is a text console and w3m.
