TuxReports has posted an article about converting Libranet to Ark Linux
Imagine converting your main production machine from one Linux distribution to another, and in the process risking years worth of data*. This is such a story. It's about converting my main computer from Libranet 2.8.1 box to Ark Linux 1.0-alpha 9.1; involving a transfer of 40 GB of data, including 40,000 plus emails, 60,000 plus files in one of hundreds of directories, learning to rely on different applications, and having the pleasure of learning KDE 3.1.4 after spending months in GNOME 2.2.
