Ditto. I have feisty on my main desktop, but I am somewhat more careful
about how I manage it - picking and choosing what I upgrade. I am not
suggesting others do this, it's just what I do.
I also have numerous Virtual machines running all the previous versions
which I user for screencasting , but also for testing stuff. For
example when people ask questions in the support tracker  I sometimes
spark up a VM running an older release to make sure what I am telling
someone is correct.
