[ubuntu-uk] 12.10 without updates works

Thanks for reply Barry, as soon as it was available I made three different attempts to get the 13.04 ISO on to my pendrive and have failed so far - regret I did not document these. It was an option I was keen to persue, but time is a challenge at present so I will recheck methods and try again. Any tips? The dual HD is also an option for the future as I have a dud m/c which I can raid.

As we are now on 13.04 with a couple of updates, and as 13.04 seems slightly slicker and more stable already than was 12.10, I'm surprised you have not yet tried the current distro! Generally - because of their history of use - a distribution upgrade often seems to give problems that a fresh install of the new distro is often better, quicker and simpler! Others may disagree, but personally, I work on two hard-drives, one with the current distro and one with the next (testing) version. During the next few days, I will install 13.10 Saucy Salamander from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/current/ and start using it as dual boot with Raring Ringtail as the second option.
Kind regards, Barry.
