Hi :)
I found it extremely smooth on most machines.  2 gave me a bit of trouble mostly because i had to 
interrupt their process and tried to resume later.  Both claimed they couldn't resume the process 
and would stay at the 10.04 although 1 of those had actually made it as far as 12.04 and just 
needed a little "fix broken packages" and i finished up with a tidy-up using Janitor in Ubuntu 
Tweaks.  The other one is still giving me a little grief but is happy in 10.04.  I just never get a 
chance to sit at the machine.  I might set it to run a few things overnight one night, if i 

Hmm, actually thinking about it that one was a 10.10 and really should not have skipped all the 
intermediate 6monthlies.  LTS to LTS has always been fine for me.  8.04 to 10.04 was fine on the 1 
machine i tried it on.  10.04 to 12.04 has been fine on about 90% of machines i've tried.  

After doing the upgrade you would be wise to run through Medibuntu again to get the multimedia 

Also you might like to try these

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tualatrix/ppa
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-xbmc 
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jonoomph/openshot-edge 
sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-tweak
sudo apt-get install xbmc
sudo apt-get install openshot openshot-docI couldn't find the "Unity Tweaks" but if you can find it 
please let me know how to install it as i had great fun with it on the experimental machine i first 
tried the upgrade on.  Ubuntu Tweaks is really useful.  Xbmc is a great movie player.  I much 
prefer it too even Vlc now but it starts up in full screen mode trying to change your desktop into 
a dedicated dvd-player.  Hunt the settings to find how to get it into "windowed mode" or before 
opening it attack it's User Profile.  I always forget and then freak out and hope my boss doesn't 
suddenly appear.  Openshot is a movie editor but i haven't used it yet.  I don't know if it's the 
best or not.  Someone else was talking about Blender.  

The main problem i had with the upgrade is that it wanted to download tons of updates and upgrades 
and new packages from the internet.  I didn't get a chance to see if i could do the upgrade from a 
12.04 Cd (which was a bit dumb but the office has unlimited broadband (well Adsl) so it didn't 
really hurt).

Tom :)

This is the libre-office list not a Ubuntu list, but we won't hold that 
against you.

Try this article 
which I just found by googling "upgrade ubuntu 10.04 to 12.04"
