I did up an upgrade yesterday using upgrade-manager -d on my 5 year old
Dell Latitude C.400 laptop! It took about 4 hours all together and most
of that was the upgrade itself, not the download.

It all works pretty much flawlessly. I even turned on compiz and
downloaded the compizconfig-settings-manager to have a play. The machine
is a little sluggish but it all seems to behave itself.

I'm about to do the same to my D.820!

Regards,
Tony.
