I rand the update-manager -d -c command from the Terminal window. I was expecting to see the option to update / upgrade my version of Ubuntu to the final release. Instead I had 91 updates listed. I completed the updates, enabled the auto logon feature and rebooted. Bootchart stated my PC now boot in 32 seconds.
I also downlaoded the bittorrent from Ubuntu and had my 699 MB iso file in 30 minutes. Faster than pizza delivery! I might find some time within the next two weeks to backup my PC, wipe out Ubuntu and reinstall from CD. Maybe my CD that I ordered will arrive by then.
