My Lubuntu Trusty upgrade experiences

I suppose reasonable people can disagree on what is best 
here. I was not really harmed by my lack of understanding about the 
delay. As I said, both upgrade methods went as well as could be 
expected, which is a testament to the hard work of the Ubuntu and 
Lubuntu developer teams.

I sometimes forget that the world moves 
on "internet time" now, which is even faster than the "24-hour news 
cycle" introduced a couple of decades ago by CNN. Even I lacked the 
patience to sit and read the announcement in detail before I acted.

Best regards,
