The upgrade process was relatively painless, unless you count taking an eternity as painful. It was over an hour, closer to an hour and a half, and seemed stuck forever on "less than a minute to go". That must be the lie of the 21st Century!

I panicked halfway through when I skimmed the instruction booklet and saw something about needing to select various options to preserve home directories and users. That must have been for some other situation, though, as I simply installed the CD, took all the default choices, and it installed like a charm without losing data.

Well, much data ... I do seem to have lost some preferences. I'll be describing what's changed in my next few blog entries ...
