Upgrading Ubuntu from Hoary to Breezy

For those of you still running Ubuntu Hoary, I have upgraded 2 computers to Breezy now, and I like the improvements just fine. There is a more up-to-date software selection, including PHP5, Ruby, Rails, Mono 1.8.x and MonoDevelop. If you want to pull from Packages.DotDeb.Org, you can even try out MySQL 5.x. I haven't done that yet, but I have found some instructions on the Ubuntu Forums that I plan to use as a guideline.

When you upgrade, you may have to stop your email server. I had to on both computers. If you want an easier installation, there are Breezy Colony CDs that you can download with BitTorrent. I haven't done that yet, but if I install on another PC before Breezy goes live, I will try it.

Best of luck to my fellow ubuntu-ites.
