Installing the beta 14.04 and updating to final would be the best option I 
think.  Only minimal changes to install were as 13.10 would have to be updated 
first, then upgraded to 14.04, so you are wasting a bunch of time downloading 
and installing packages, and you don't have to question yourself months from 
if have you a problem "did the system upgrade from 13.10 to 14.04 cleanly?".
