Is it possible to upgrade for example from Ubuntu 9.10, 10.04 or even 10.10 to the latest version of Ubuntu (11.10 in this case). Am not asking to download the DVD/CD or to upgrade from one version to the other until you get to 11.10. I want to know if an older can upgrade from 9.10 directly to 11.10 or something like this.
And of course if yes or no, has this been thought about in any talks like a way to make it so that users have it easier to upgrade to the latest version in cases where it could not be done for a long time (Like moving around the world for 2 years with Ubuntu 9.10 and then coming home and looking at Unity in 11.10).
INFO - I know this 2 already exist:
If the answer is still no, maybe more information about if any talks have been made to this kind of work or idea.
