I upgraded one laptop with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS to 14.04 LTS. Most of the process went pretty smoothly.  However, every software update after the upgrade complains about a failed install:

You can try out other Linux distributions on your Ubuntu or other Linux machine by installing on a virtual machine.  Links with how-to instructions for two popular methods:

For summer 2014, have decided to keep Roanoke Linux Users Group as an online community with this web site and scheduled sessions on IRC.

Starting June 25 at 9:00 pm, join in the #roalug IRC channel on irc.freenode.net

As the group develops some membership, can look into a meeting facility sometime this fall (open for suggestions).

Hope to see you on IRC!

Easy to use, Windows XP replacement for older PC hardware. Based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS with LInux Lite specific repository and software. They have an active user forum for tips and support. Looks like a very good candidate to try out!
