I left my dist upgrade (from Netbook Edition 10.04 to 10.10) running overnight and I wake up to see it frozen at some ridiculous question about replacing a config file. Why can't they still get this right? Don't pause and ask questions!!
Isn't Ubuntu supposed to be for average usrs? How is an average user supposed to know the "right" answer to such a question?
If the developers really feel they have to offer this flexibility, at least ask a question at the beginning of the upgrade like "when there are config file conflicts, should we stop and ask you about it or just make our best guess?"
