I am happily using Mint 5.1 (with all necessary updates) on this pc which is my home desktop system.
Since Mint 7 is out I would like to try it out and possibly use it as my main OS. e.g. using Mint 7 instead of Mint 5.
I am currently in the process of downloading the 1.3 GB live-DVD of Mint 7.
My main question is this:
Will I need to delete Mint 5 and over-write it with Mint 7, or can I somehow simply update to Mint 7 ??? I'm not sure, but I got the impression that there might be some 'apt-get' commands (or similar) which will do this.
Also, what is the best way for me to backup my user files??? I have a dvd burner in my system... however, my home folder will probably take several dvd's to backup.
In the mean time I'll wait for my Mint 7 live dvd to finish downloading -- then burn it to disc and have a play with it.
