Do you have a specific concern? The question is too broad right now. –  Tom Brossman Oct 18 '12 at 21:24

It's not too hard actually.

  1. Open your Updates Manager;
  2. Click 'Settings' in bottom left;
  3. In the new window, select the 'Updates' tab;
  4. Under 'Notify me of a new Ubuntu version' select 'For any new version';
  5. Make sure you don't change any other setting;
  6. Run the updater and you will be prompted to upgrade to the newest version, 12.10 that is.

Things to remember:

  • Make sure to back up your important documents, just in case;
  • If you have any custom PPAs added, make sure to re-enable them after the upgrade;
  • Although 12.10 is a stable release, it's the 12.04 that is a LTS; So it's the 12.04 that is recommended for usage on production machines.
