    Does anyone know the amount of data that will be downloaded when upgrading from 13.04 to 13.10?

    How much spare disc space do we need to store the updates before they are applied and everything is deleted?

    Is is sensible to do the upgrade or better to install 13.10 from scratch or would it be even more sensible for an adhoc user to wait until the next release is made this summer?

    I noticed that you have same problem with me, your unity is not transparent anymore when upgrading to saucy salamander. Try to auto hide the unity, you will see the plain background will disturb other applications. If you found any solution please inform me thanks.
