Well I really don't know if I would go directly from 10.04 to 12.04 or
otherwise, but yes for gettting good support, definitely, I would have
to upgrade. The great thing about this Ubuntu mailing list is that
newbies can learn well from the basics.
Keeping in mind this, I have the following options available with me:
1. 10.04 -> 11.04 -> 11.10 -> 12.04
2. 10.04 -> 11.04 (and using 11.04)
3. 10.04 -> 11.04 -> 11.10 (and using 11.10)
4. 10.04 -> 12.04
5. Re-installation of 11.04 (and using 11.04)
6. Re-installation of 11.10 (and using 11.10)
7. Re-installation of 12.04
8. Re-installation of 11.04 (and then) 11.04 -> 11.10 (and using 11.10)
9. Re-installation of 11.04 (and then) 11.04 -> 11.10 -> 12.04
10. Re-installation of 11.10 (and then) 11.10 -> 12.04
These are the complete and all possible ways. Out of these,
_obviously_ I am (or anyone) only interested either in option 4 (first
preference) or 7 (second preference) than any other choice.
