When Ubuntu 8.10 got released, I was excited to upgrade to the new version. I did the usual procedure of backing up my notebook’s hard disk and started to install the new Ubuntu 8.10. I opted not to do the upgrade path ‘coz I wanted to start over a clean environment.
Being a newbie to Ubuntu, my 8.04 setup was kinda full of “test installs” of software to try out which one I would use. I thought this would be a perfect time to start clean and later just setup a “test” Ubuntu system on a VirtualBox machine.
