All depends on how adept you are in fixing problem.  Me? I
 like a challenge, and have been using Intrepid now for about 2 weeks.
Every day there has been anywhere between 40 and 90 updates, theyve been
going down slowly seems last few days, but that could be my imagination.
 I had minimal problems, wireless kept dropping first time I upgraded,
but now its fine.  Had x server and driver problems after upgrade
but now fixed

My recommendation would be if you have a spare box, go ahead!
