Updates - Should I accept the changes?

OK, so, this leads me to the following questions:

1. If I click on 'Apply Changes' - Will I end up with a KDE 4.2 desktop on a
Hardy distro?
2. What happens if I am not happy and want to revert to what I have now
(what would be the equivalent to creating a 'System Restore Point' in
3. How do I actually do a dist-upgrade but make sure the PPA source is used
for KDE stuff? - or did I get this part wrong?

As you can see - I am quite confused.

What I really want is to do a dit-upgrade to 8.10 as soon as KDE 4.2 stable
release (I stand corrected - David) is out.

I tried to look for the due date, with no luck....

Can someone point me in the right direction?
