Hi Valtam,

That is Good News... But excuse my ignorance on releases.

I'm on LL 2.0 which is based on Ubuntu 14.04
I see Ubuntu 14.10 coming along, is that LL 2.2 is based on.?

Does this then mean If I want LTS I stay with 2.0,
or go for 2.2 for rolling releases.?

or have I got it wrong.?

Thanks... Dave

O.K, Clicking on the Ubuntu link shows the 14.04 LTS, 14.10 rolling,
so the question is?, is LL2.2 is based on 14.04 or 14.10, and therefore rolling.
Sorry to labour this...

Hi Dave,

Linux Lite is always based on Ubuntu LTS releases. So the next LL release, LL 2.2, will also be be be based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

Does that make sense?

Valtam,

The welcome menu looks great! The "install-updates, do this first" is a nice touch and the slide-show seems very polished. Great work, looking forward to the release.

I am using Linux Lite 2.0, why would I want to install 2.2?

I would have to install again all additional applications, set up my appearance preferences again, etc. I thought I would not have to reinstall again for 5 years since LL is based on Ubuntu LTS.  ???

I have a similar question as Coastie but I'll ask in a Windows type question because that's what I understand.  Is upgrading from LL 2.0 to LL 2.2 more like installing a service pack to Windows 7 or more like going to Windows 8?

I'm all for upgrading except for losing my Firefox bookmarks.  It literally took hours to copy them (individually) from my Windows laptop to my LL desktop as I had to look at the url on the laptop then type it on the desktop.  Temporarily transferring my folders/files from my OS HDD to another while I install an update isn't a big deal (just time consuming).

Hello Monkeyman,

it would be "like" going from 7 to 8, as it is a full install of the Operating system.

A service pack would be "similar" to Menu>install updates in Linux Lite.
The difference is Menu>install updates updates the OS and the programs/packages with stable updates, whereas the service patch in windows only updates the OS , the programs then need to be updated one at a time, or set to autoupdate and they will hog systems resources and bandwidth with their too often checks.Especially so just after rebooting, slowing down the time before the desktop is reliably usable.
Another difference is LL doesn't need restarting after each one of those updates it makes. So again it saves the user time, and is more efficient in use.

To save bookmarks I open Leafpad, click a favourite in Firefox then copy/paste its url from the address bar in to Leafpad, click the next favourite url and repeat, save the Leafpad file to a usb flash drive.
Then on the next computer I use, or reinstall to, I open Leafpad copy/paste the url to the address bar, visit site, add to favourites in the usual way.
I then close the Leafpad and save it on the usb flash drive, so in future reducing the number of steps required by 50%, as I have the url stored.

Every time I add a new favourite I copy the url into the leafpad file ;-)
Every time I delete a favourite I delete it from the Leafpad file.
So the Leafpad file is always up to date/ backup and accurate, should a hardware malfunction occur. (or in windows should the OS have fell apart).

One other thing I do is I make individual text files for each program name and save on usb flash drive where I needed to make a fix, or change it to my liking, so when reinstalling it makes it easy to set those programs back to how they were.

To save bookmarks...

That's a good idea but I probably have 150-200 bookmarks.  It'll take a LONG time to do it that way but I guess there's no other way for now.  I'll be glad when there's a Mozbackup version that works in Linux.
