Which boils down to this: _you_ have to look for yourself. I would have 
answered there were no problems because I  use none of Jordon's stuff.

I understand many on this list run on older hardware, but are all your 
harddisks so small you can't spare a few GB? I  am surprised (true, no troll) 
that people are worried to wreck there running system when they upgrade. I 
would _never_ start an upgrade without having first tested a fresh install, 
that's why I keep a free partition where I install the new release, find out 
about issues that concern me, and then (after a backup) start an upgrade or a 
fresh install.
