Is it preferable to upgrade or reinstall?

Postby varaonaid on Thu Apr 19, 2007 5:58 pm

Hi,

I'm lovin' the Mint KDE beta but can't wait to get the final. I'm wondering if it's preferable to upgrade to the final or if a complete reinstall is better? Obviously, it seems the upgrade would be easier (since I have wireless working now, etc and wouldn't have to reconfig that) but if for some reason the system would be more stable, I'd be willing to reinstall.

Also, how will the upgrade be available? Adept/Synaptic?

Thanks in advance. Fantastic work on this distro!!!!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Got my answer and thought I'd post for others. Better to reinstall if possible. According to Clem, bugs are present in beta, final and update path. So a clean install minimizes the potential for issues.
