Are you making the jump to Fiesty Fawn? Java is easier to get in this release. It sounds like using things like non-free codecs has been simplified. Curious to know if performance improves/degrades.

Eventually, but not immediately.

I want to know what issues pop up with an upgrade in place effort.

I have two boxes, neither one is performance critical, one is so old it is slow regardless.

Im still using 6.06 and don't plan an update for 07 and 08.

I need a stable OS, which I got, and didn't risk anything, and installed Java myself without apt/dpkg knowing of java, because I like to decide myself, when to update Java - more often or less often, than the supporters think about. And installing java by hand is not a big issue, while I don't know enough about the deb-System.
Of course I need java-1.4, 1.5 and 1.6 in parallel.

The second package without ubuntu-control is eclipse.
And that's it.

Well - perhaps 2008 with a new Laptop.

Ha, ha - having said that, I look at my bittorrent-window, which indicates: ubuntu-7.04-server-i386.iso 100% complet, 290 M up.
I will install it on a rarely used desktop.

I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
