Ubuntu 13.04 (Raring Ringtail) is out!

After over a year in hibernation, I will attempt to jumpstart my blogging habit again. I’ll begin by rambling about Ubuntu and the latest release of Ubuntu which I recently upgraded to.

I now use Ubuntu as my main operating system and have done so for over a year. I’ve grown to love Unity and the increasing stability of this free operating system. One of my biggest annoyances about being on Ubuntu was the seeming fragility of the upgrade tool and for the longest time, an upgrade meant wiping my computer and installing a fresh copy.

I have been able to successfully upgrade my notebook from 12.04 to 12.10 and from 12.10 to 13.04 using the upgrade tool. Visually, 13.04 hasn’t changed much but a lot of changes were made under the hood. Importantly, don’t upgrade just yet if you rely on Chrome or Skype for your day job unless you understand the workarounds in the release notes.

Welcome to 13.04
