Hi Neil!

I highly recommend that you read the release-notes :

I am myself a big fan of the lts releases which runs on basically all of my
machines. However, I'm also a big fan of the terminal so my question is why
it appears to be a bad thing to install software via terminal? apt is (in
my point of view) the one and only package manager you'll ever need ;-)

Next Point is that the first 16.04 lts release will be issued sometime in
coming june. The current release are not LTS yet ( this is why 'apt-get
dist-upgrade' doesn't show any available update yet in your 14.04 version.

I didn't try the ne version yet but I'm looking forward to it when the
official lts will be released. I'm sure it can't be THAT bad ;-)
