    Well it is no secret that when you change to the next version of 
Ubuntu you will get a flurry of updates some which correct complaints 
you might make. I change because it is fun and I make it very easy to do.

    My user directory is called /karl which is in it's own partition 
called /dev/sda5 and today I use it on Hardy and some days I use it on 
Gutsy. In 10 days I will use it on Intrepid. This means my email and my 
web-browsing all still work on the new system. This is the way to do things.
