When it comes to ease of upgrading, I have to say that Ubuntu takes the cake. For newbies and experienced users alike, this has got to be one of the most simple upgrade procedures ever.
Basically, it comes down to this. You launch Synaptic, and it detects that there’s a new version out there. You click on the button that says “Upgrade”.
After one or two clicks for OK on the install, it just goes off to the Internet to grab the correct packages and does the upgrade for you. You just leave it alone and the upgrade will just set up itself. Bottlenecked by your bandwidth and your processor speed when the packages are installed. Definitely gives meaning to one click upgrade.
So if you’re looking for a distribution that’s easy to use and you don’t know what you’re doing but don’t want to hassle with too many things since you’re trying out Linux for the first time, then give Ubuntu a go.\
