I prefer upgrades - it saves a lot of time needed to install and
configure all the applications as they were before the upgrade. I don't
remember a really catastrophic upgrade. OTOH, I'm familiar enough with
the system to overcome minor problems.

That depends on your internet connection speed, amount of installed
packages and machine speed. For me it was less than 2 hours + download
time for about 2100 installed packages.

Well, I would need several days to find all the packages I want to have
on the machine and configure everything to my liking, so YMMV.
