Newbie Upgrade Question

This may be a stupid question, but how easy will it be to upgrade from 15.10 to 16.04? Will it just be a matter of installing the new version on top of my existing OS? Or, will I need to delete things and make lots of adjustments to my current set up?

I’m partially asking so I can decide whether to continue running 15.10 off of a USB drive or install it on my computer. If the upgrade will be complicated, I’ll just wait until 16.04 is “finished.” BTW, when will that be?

16,04 will come out in April, good idea to wait for the finished product.

You can go ahead and install 15.10 and then just upgrade to 16o4 when it comes out. If you don’t want to wait, you can upgrade to 16o4 anytime you want, but be prepared to deal with the unfinished product.

Thanks! I definitely want to wait for the finished product. Dealing with a product that’s in development at the same time that I’m learning Ubuntu sounds too intimidating.
