comment Why doesn't update-manager allow me to upgrade distribution?
I see the merit in avoiding updates. It's certainly the case with Windows. However, I had the impression package-based installs were clean enough to do whole release upgrades like this. My home PC started with 7.04 and has been upgraded to each release without issues. Reinstalling sounds too intrusive.

comment Make Firefox automagically pick up default internet proxy?
It sounds to me that this task is best left up to that company's IT department. This is an infrastructure support issue if the desktop browsers are not pre-configured for Internet access.
