How to Upgrade to Ubuntu 13.10

I am at the point where I am considering upgrading to Saucy (Ubuntu 13.10) on one of my two dual-boots.  I am debating how much breakage I can stand this early in the cycle.  ;)  Anyway, here are the instructions for the courageous:

To upgrade from Ubuntu 13.04 to 13.10 on a desktop system:

The instructions say to first open up Software Sources.

Then, you need to press Alt + F2 and type in “update-manager -d” (without the quotes).

Update Manager should open up and tell you: New distribution release ‘13.10’ is available.

Then, just click on “Upgrade” and follow the on-screen instructions.

Users of other Ubuntu releases need to upgrade first to 12.04, and then to 13.10.

    I’m not that brave yet. Let us know how 13.10 works and any practical advantages over 13.04.

      I haven’t dared yet, either. The flavors only recently went to Alpha 1. However, I am seriously thinking about it. I saved the “production” files to my thumb drive. ;)
