Seconded. One other thing that some people seem to forget: you are not
forced to upgrade at all. You can also wait until the final FF3 is in
8.04 and then upgrade. To give users a better chance to make an informed
decision, there maybe should exist a link to the release notes and the
upgrade notes in the update-manager GUI
