Can you give us more details about what went wrong with your network and
sound ? was it working in Jaunty out of the box ? did it just break once
you upgraded to Karmic ?

And those three machines you're talking about, do they have similar
network and sound cards ? are all three of them from the same make and
model ?

I don't see why you decided to upgrade to Karmic if the user was happy
with Jaunty ?

I have to agree that Debian releases tend to be more stable, but I'm not
sure about the user friendly thing !!

I have seen a few people complaining about their upgrades from Jaunty to
Karmic that went bad. I personally upgraded three computers to Karmic
without any issues (Actually the jack sense on my work computer's sound
card wasn't working in Jaunty and it works now in Karmic).

Anyway, it doesn't seem like a common issue, I have only seen a few
cases of upgrade fails, and in most of them it was the users
"fault" (using apt to upgrade for instance).
