Feisty feature of the day #40 - Migrating data the easy way

Wouldn't it be nice, when you decided to switch from Windows to Ubuntu, if all of your files and settings could be easily migrated over onto Ubuntu with the minimum of hassle, right from your Windows user account. That's the Holy Grail of upgrading, right? I'll let the pictures do the talking. The pictures which I've sneakily borrowed from the Ubuntu wiki, that is:

Migrating from Windows to Ubuntu

The migration assistant shows up in the Ubuntu installer (ubiquity) if you have a Windows partition on your computer.

Please note that you should still make and test a backup of all of your important files and settings before upgrading to Ubuntu from Windows. There's always a possibility that things could go wrong and important things could get lost.

See Michael Larabel's blog for more info and better screenshots.
