    Your data should remain as is, but I would back up just in case. IMO, you should just wait until it is released this thursday and do a fresh install.

    Your data will be preserved.
    It's always a good idea to backup important stuff though.

    The data would not be lost. The kernel, Gnome, applications would be updated. I would suggest you to wait till April 29, that day 10.04 LTS final would be released. Right now it is a release candidate going into further development.

    Always back up, and I say wait till it is released. It is very stable at this point, but don't want broken stuff to appear. Give it a few more days, then upgrade. But Back Up First!! Also if you have a slow connection it will take a while. It usually updates around 2,000 files or more.
