I'm sorry if this has been asked already ... I looked around and couldn't find the same question, as there are so many ...
Anyway, my motherboard got fried and I'm getting a used computer in about a week to replace it. So that means I'll be installing the operating system just a couple weeks before the new version comes out.
Which would make things the easiest if I want to update to 9.04 fairly soon? Install the beta and then update to the stable version, or install 8.04 or 8.10 and then migrate to the new version? I'm concerned that if I do the former it'll not be stable enough, and I'm concerned that if I do the latter I'll lose a lot of my settings and that sort of thing with the switch.
My first choice would be to simply wait until the 23rd, but that's not really an option. Any advice? Thanks!
