    Running Xubuntu 16.04 atm, gonna update to 18.04 in couple of weeks or so, dunno if I'll stick with Xubuntu, MATE and Budgie seems nice.

    Waiting for things to settle down before I upgrade my 16.04 servers to 18.04. I am looking forward to it though.

    Apparently do-release-upgrade wont find a new release until LTS 18.04.1 which is coming in July, so i'll be waiting until then before i start upgrading my 16.04's.

    Huh, really? I did it and upgraded from 16.04 to 18.04 that way.

    Edit: oh, I added the -d flag, so without it, it won't work until point release is available.

    Yeah, waiting until July seems like the sensible thing to do. Wait until any bugs that have slipped through have been fixed and then upgrade.

    Thats what I'm doing. Much smoother transition and there is no point rushing.

    I just discovered Lutris, oh man, it makes running Windows games on Linux so much easier, saves me time messing about with Wine settings to get stuff working properly since it applies configs for you.

    Tested and played Hearthstone and WoW, ran well.

    I would have held off on upgrading to 18.04 but I managed to borked my 16.04 installation, so, yeah :p also needed to run 18.04 to test my post install script, so figured I'd go for it and test everything. It's running pretty nicely.

    Not heard of that before. Does it come pre built with 18.04?

    Lutris? Nah, you need to add repo for it then install it.

    lutris.net is the site.
