And then of course, you'll need to spend the next two-three days
reinstalling & retuning packages that the Ubuntu gods decided to

things like grsync, synaptic, cups-pdf, nmap, etherape, acroread,
wine, vmware, virtualbox, opengis, dia, sun-java jre, adobe
flash, *all* of your printers, etc, etc. And that's just so you
can get back to work & experiment with Unity like a game during
off time if you wish. :=)

Is this a general thing about 12.04 (i.e. that it deletes all user
packages when upgrading)?

I just upgraded from 11.04 -> 11.10 & all went OK. None of my user
installed packages were removed. Or is just coming about from
upgrading from 10.10?

I suspect that whatever you had that Ubuntu didn't like was either
removed in 11.04 to 11.10, or you didn't have it installed to begin
with. Did you have any of the above listed installed?
