I expect most of us use something that's not "pure" hoary :-)

Really, until the Breezy release, it is going to have hiccups (to be honest, 
probably after that, too, but hopefully not too many), but it should be 
reasonably reliable for a personal system.  Not something I'd want to run the 
corporate servers on, though :-)

"Mixing" is a problem, but if you move from hoary to breezy, that shouldn't 
be.
