Upgrade to Ubuntu 13.04 “Raring Ringtail” from Ubuntu 12.10

That’s right, Ubuntu 12.10 is upgradable to latest Ubuntu 13.04 “Raring Ringtail” release. And Ubuntu 13.04 is pretty stable OS, though I still won’t/can’t recommend it for production machines. It is even a little more snappier already than all the previous releases. More on that later. Right now, here is what you need to do to upgrade Ubuntu 12.10 to Ubuntu 13.04 “Raring Ringtail”.
