BugeyeDhi all, recommendation requested ... in-laws are currently running 9.10 ... i'm about to take to them a newer computer and want to give them 11.04. how do i best retain their "stuff" ?18:22
BugeyeDtwo options are to simply install new and copy over their entire home directories. but i worry that if i don't upgrade in-place their home directory / settings / preferences will not correctly be updated for 11.04 ... anyone?18:22

BugeyeDoriginal plan was a fresh install (new hardware anyway) then copying over the entire home directory. just worried that the upgrade would have made changes to /home that would be missed otherwise.18:50
