I personally wouldn't. I wouldn't want the other person to get a negative image of Ubuntu. Users 
shouldn't have to use the command line unless absolutely necessary, and having them type obscure 
commands in a terminal doesn't look particularly nice. IMO.

As I said, I wouldn't upgrade at all if I were you. Dapper works. As the adage goes "If it ain't 
broke, don't fix it".
