Ubuntu 12.04 Beta 2 Has Been Released

Precise Pangolin, Ubuntu 12.04 Beta 2 has just been released.  The beta is a preview of the upcoming LTS.

Upgrading from Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric) or Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid):

 To upgrade from Ubuntu 11.10 or Ubuntu 10.04 LTS on a desktop system, press Alt+F2 and type in “update-manager -d” (without the quotes) into the command box. Update Manager should open up and tell you: New distribution release ’12.04′ is available. Click Upgrade and follow the on-screen instructions.

 To upgrade from Ubuntu 11.10 or Ubuntu 10.04 LTS on a server system: install the update-manager-core package if it is not already installed; launch the upgrade tool with the command sudo do-release-upgrade -d; and follow the on-screen instructions. Note that the server upgrade is now more robust and will utilize GNU screen and automatically re-attach in case of e.g. dropped connection problems.

    Downloaded and installed in a VM. We’ll see if it lasts longer than beta 1. I hope so.

    So far, so good! I’ve been playing with customizations and things are going smoothly.

    It has gone well with me, too. I have been putting off reviewing Precise because for a while, my titles would have gone something like: Precise has hosed my computer *again.* Now it seems stable enough to recommend.
