The limits of "community driven"
So I decided to finally upgrade from Karmic to Lucid. Easy task, only should take some time: After all I did a plain default install. Well, ok - I've used the alternative ISO as my employer requires me to use full disk encryption. It's a good idea anyway, no idea why this feature isn't the default for all installs.
So after some time the install finishes, the computer reboots and
grub the kernel tells me it cannot find the root fs.
Obviously nobody cared to check if upgrade with encrypted disks works. Too boring. Still would not have happend with some professional OS vendor. Especially not four mounths after the initial release.
EPIC FAIL! Thank you. Not.
Update: In case you need proof for "too boring" check this rotting bug report.
