I would say so. The Unity shipping in 12.04 is a good deal better than
that in 11.10 from what I hear, and any progress on MATE (an attempt at
a Gnome 2.x for machines running Gnome 3) will improve it there, too.

If all you're particularly looking to upgrade is
Office, then I'd just upgrade that and wait until April before

I would like to think not - the danger, as I understand it, is that the
LibreOffice installation changes some components that
uses. If you've no intention of using, that shouldn't
really matter.
