Happy to have installed 14.04 now on my desktop and old laptop but 
upgrading from 12.04 was not very smooth. Only a complete overwrite 
worked out OK. On my  laptop I forgot to put the wireless connection on 
when upgrading to 14.04 ( I assumed I could do this afterward) and had 
to reinstall again as I couldn't find a way to find the router.

There is a problem with media playing in 14.04 which I hadn't notice in 
12.04: VLC player won't start a CD or DVD until it is ejected first from 
PCManFM in the left column. Also VLC won't start when a CD or DVD was 
present at start-up although BIOS is set to boot from the hard disk. 
With BIOS setting at CD/DVD reading first, the system won't even boot 
when a movie DVD is present, but that is a handicap quickly learned to 
Reinstalling VLC didn't solve anything
