Ubuntu release testing not good

Apparently, the latest set of Ubuntu updates may break it. That’s really not good. Microsoft would get flayed alive if a service pack broke Windows in this way. Dapper is a supported release; we need to do better than this. I’ve got no idea whether it’s a problem for everyone or just for a few people, and I don’t know how it’s being resolved, but I suspect some internal update-release procedures (as well as “how do we undo an update release” procedures) are being looked at. Meanwhile, don’t click the upgrade button just yet.

I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
