18.04 works great for me too, on three machines. I don't understand all 
the hate for Xubuntu 18.04 on this mail list recently.

Thiago, you shouldn't loose any files and your configuration should stay 
the same, but remember to backup your important data before upgrading. 
That's always a good idea.

Also, what I personally do is changing my video driver to Nouveau, and 
changing it back to proprietary NVIDIA after the upgrade, but it's a 
hardware specific thing. The upgrade process will automatically disable 
all your PPAs and other repositories you've added, so be sure to enable 
them manually again and change entries from "xenial" to "bionic". All 
that you can pretty easily do in the software-properties-gtk (Software & 
Updates) application.
