I'll chime in with the same experience. The upgrade basically hosed my 
system, then a fresh install on the same machine went well (except I did 
have to add a new xorg line to reserve video memory, it took me two days 
till I found the line but it really was just a one line fix).

Now that machine seems good, but I'm not about to play around with my 
main desktop nor laptop. I've run XP on one machine happily for 5 years, 
I'm perfectly happy with Dapper for a while. With my current Dapper 
setup I have the best system hardware and software wise that I've ever 
had in 20 years. Why get greedy for a little faster boot. I've got XGL 
Beryl and a system slicker than my OS X machine by far.
