Ubuntu 19.04 (Disco Dingo) on XPS 13?

Has anyone tried updating to 19.04? If so, how did it go? I'm tempted to take the plunge...

Re: Ubuntu 19.04 (Disco Dingo) on XPS 13?

I'm too lazy to re do everything so I just clean install alongside Windows 10.

Works fine for me.

Upgrades have always been buggy for me so I always clean install

Re: Ubuntu 19.04 (Disco Dingo) on XPS 13?

Thanks for your reply. Does all of your hardware work with DD? I'm hoping that the Dell-specific drivers won't cause any problems after an upgrade.

I'll probably do a full-disk backup and then upgrade as opposed to a clean install because I'm hoping not to have to put that much time into it. If the upgrade fails or I have issues later, then I can try a clean install. My system is actually working just fine as it is, so I'd mostly be upgrading out of curiosity.

Which begs the question: have you noticed any improvements with DD, or is it essentially the same (and perhaps not worth the effort)? I used rolling Debian unstable for years, so all this stability and lack of drama is unfamiliar to me. But maybe I should just get used to it...
