Life is matter of Risk but should be well calculated. I have been using Xubutu 12.04 under
wubi for a While on Ideapad S12 but It was quite uneasy to work with this buggy solution. I did get a try with Mint equivalent of
wubi running on Mint 14 KDE DVD on Lenovo X61. It still lacks a lot because the ppa are empty since Quantal 12.1 is no more supported.
As Precise will die in April 2017, I am wondering what to do next:
- I keep it as it is forget any update and install every program with deb or script
- I try to replace the quantal PPA with the precise one. Not really a downgrade but software Center should work afterwards.
- Since from what I have read an upgrade from 12.04 to 14.04 with
wubiis a headache possibly it will be the same with MINT 14 going to 17. However what about changing only the PPA.
How should I proceed?
