and upgrading my pretty recent install of Ubuntu 7.10 to 8.04 Beta.
I actually installed Ubuntu since I’ve experienced major performance issues when running Java applications on my native amd64 bit Gentoo installation, which has been around for over 5 years.
Since my primary language for business development is Java and a lot of work needs to be done, I needed a quick 32bit environment and chose Ubuntu which has I must say come a long way since the 4/5 days when I last gave it a real try.
The update process is about to finish (fully automated, very neatly executed!) so I’m going to copy over the needed files to my boot partition and perform a quick reboot to see what gives.
