Hello, Artful Aardvark!

Yesterday, I booted my Zeisty Zapus Ubuntu on my ThinkPenguin laptop with the intention to play a Steam game.  I was greeted by the software updates notification.  It asked me if I wanted to upgrade to the new Ubuntu version.

Since I had upgraded in the past from Yakkety Yak, the laptop's original Ubuntu, to Zeisty Zapus without any issues, I decided to go for the newest release.

It took a while to download.  That was not a surprise, considering the quantity of new packages that were to be installed.  When the upgrade finished, I rebooted and was greeted by a login screen.  Interesting, previously, Ubuntu got to the desktop automatically.  Artful Aarvark seemed to bring a couple of changes, judging by that.

After logging in, I realized that Unity had been replaced by Gnome.  Well, I'm not a particular fan of either, so that was OK with me.

Apparently, everything works.  I need to test it more carefully, but I don't have much time currently as I am totally swamped with work and actually, the game I originally wanted to play was to keep my sanity.  Unfortunately, I could not play because I ran out of time, but I can play with my new Ubuntu later.
