I'd recommend avoiding the upgrade.


Absolutely - my experience with upgrading is very poor and now I have a separate /home partition and simply do a fresh install.

Doing a fresh install, however, my experience with the last releases of Ubuntu have been good - but this one with so many changes we'll see, I think I'm reasonably optimistic.

Synaptics trackpad input drivers and my ThinkPad T42 with Radeon 9600M will disagree even with fresh installs.
