How to Upgrade to Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex

It took me a while to find this, and it should not be done on a production machine (I'm installing it in Virtualbox), but here is how to install very early version of the next version of Ubuntu:

1. Install Hardy
2. change /etc/apt/sources.list so it contains only this:
deb intrepid main restricted universe multiverse
3. sudo aptitude update
4. sudo aptitude dist-upgrade

EDIT: You can now download an iso of Intrepid from here (note: These ISO's don't seem to work with Virtualbox - see bug report here).

EDIT EDIT: If you want to try a liveCD, look here.

EDIT EDIT EDIT: Now that the alphas are out, the easiest way to upgrade to Intrepid is with the following command (still not recommended for production machines):

sudo update-manager -d
