I mentioned yesterday that I was trying out the beta LiveCD of Ubuntu 6.06 (Dapper Drake to its friends).
First, the good news: Ubuntu LiveCD is a technological marvel, a fabulous achievement. But, despite the hard work, the user experience still falls short in a couple of important areas.
Since I had already used my system for a while I was not in the mood to start over so I did what some people might think is unthinkable (stupid) I went the upgrade root. I edited my sources.list and replaced all repositories with dapper drake. Then launched Synaptic and chose "mark all upgrades."
