Its been a few days since they pressed the ISO for this so I thought I'd upgrade. Before this had been running a dual boot Windows/Ubuntu 9.04 system with default Ubuntu partitioning.
This time round I thought I'd mount my /home in a seperate partition. Followed some instructions online, pleased I backed up /home as the upshot of the later parts of the process weren't too spectacular. But it got far enough that when I installed 10.04 I was able to point /home at the new partition and when I booted up it all worked swimmingly. With /home now seperated from root future upgrades etc should be easy.
Nothing to report at this point - I'd heavily customised my 9.04 and so a stock 10.04 feels like a big step backwards but thats just because I'm not used to it. I'll report back at some point once I've added in the additional software sources, installed my standard apps, changed look and feel etc!
About the only thing that I have noticed is that booting up in 10.04 on my machine doesn't appear to be materially faster than in 9.04. 9.04 was drop dead fast anyway so for 10.04 to have been faster would have been a hard ask.
Anyone else done the update? Did you do a clean install like me? What are your first impressions?
