I am not very knowledgable on Ubuntu in general but for the past few days I have been getting a bit of knowlege here and there. At first this desktop was only set to turn on and run in ¨Terminal"mode like cmd black and white, but since this computer runs and comunnicates with our other software found in different computers we needed to have a GUI which after some research I was able to installand now I find out it is called Gnome.
Anywho, while I was exited that I was able to get it this far found out that this is running an old version Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Hardy Heron. It is prompting me to do tons of updates and suggesting to upgrade to 10.04.3 LTS I wouldnt mind to do so but would the upgrade damage or delete the files and software it has to communicate with our other software/servers? Thanks in advance!
