I have been using Hoary for a few months that was upgraded from Warty
and updated daily it worked fine, certainly no problems. The only
thing is that I reformatted the other day and did a fresh install from
the Hoary preview ISO just to help test and see if there are any
differeneces. The end result is pretty much the same except that the
fresh install from ISO seems much faster and more responsive, I dont
think it is because I had more stuff loaded when I upgraded as I have
installed all the packages I used. It just seems faster. Id definately
recommend a fresh install, just tar up anything you want to keep onto
a seperate partition or CD and install from scrach.
