comment How do I know if apt-get is going to do a partial upgrade?
Do you suggest using the plain 'upgrade' command? I've seen that this command does not install kernel upgrades for example, why?

+1, this package is horrible, it makes the font ugly in firefox, I always apt-pin it to prevent it from being installed.

comment How do I enable automatic updates?
But an important package for your server, web application, etc might not be an "essential" package and could potentially get removed.

comment Why Ubuntu will no longer measure file size unit as byte, megabyte, gigabyte, etc?
To my knowledge, using KiB, MiB...etc is already in place in Ubuntu. So "Ubuntu will no longer.." should be "Ubuntu is no longer.."

comment Not-So-Well-Known features of Ubuntu
This is hard to define what is "hidden" as it can be easily accessible, like your example, so I do not consider it very hidden. But I see your point, you mean features that are not obvious, but then again it is hard to define what is obvious or not! =(

comment How to force installation of kernel updates when using apt-get upgrade?
Also cite the man page: It is sometimes necessary to remove one package in order to upgrade another; this command is not able to upgrade packages in such situations. Use the full-upgrade command to upgrade as many packages as possible.

10.04 also, it tells me "These updates are kept from being upgraded" (translated from French). and it lists the linux updates.
