Upgrading to Ubuntu Edgy from Dapper

Friday evening and a nice time to spend on upgrading to Ubuntu Edgy.
replaced all dapper to edgy in /etc/apt/sources.list and ran
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

I had to run apt-get update couple of times and apg-get dist-upgrade to capture those missing packages which were updated due to connection error.

At first, the apt-get update failed because of multiverse repositories. I commented out the following lines to proceed with the upgrade.
deb edgy universe multiverse
deb-src edgy universe multiverse

Once the upgrade is complete, after the reboot, I ran update, upgrade again. I uncommented the above lines and ran update and upgrade again to complete the distribution upgrade to Edgy.

I love Firefox 2

Too good is a simple word. I dont have statistics, but the overall experience is good. The pages load much faster (I can feel it), the tabs looks neat and glossy. Will update more in the days to come.
