From what an end user might experience, what are the differences between cloning to a new PC/Laptop an already installed, configured and updated system or doing a fresh installation assuming that the installation settings are the same, for example:
- The user name is the same
- The computer name is the same
- The timezone is the same
- What will be configure is the same (VLC will be installed, the restricted extras will be installed, all the same packages will be installed)
Are there any drawbacks/problems in cloning in comparison to freshly installing and vice versa. What advantages does one have over the other.
