I'm personally an 'install from fresh' person, but that's
just me ;)

Otherwise, I heard two anecdotal stories at a recent LUG
meeting of people upgrading to Jaunty and it taking several
hours. In fact, one person re-did it from fresh on their
machine at the meet and it took about 35mins.

Any thoughts on this?
