    I haven't done the update yet and am waiting for things to stabilize out but I've done all of the updates from 9.04 or 9.10 (can't remember which) through 11.10 and not lost programs.

    You can upgrade directly from 10.04 to 12.04.

    I would wait until the first point release (12.04.1) in July to upgrade a system with a lot of non-standard packages. That is what Ubuntu is recommending and even though I'm an experienced Linux user (about 7 years) I'm having issues with an upgrade.

    You can't upgrade to 11.10 directly.

    You can only upgrade from one release to the next one, or from one LTS to the next LTS. Since 10.04 and 12.04 are LTS you can upgrade directly.

    Go into Software Sources in the Updates tab, and set it to only prompt you for Long Term releases (LTSs). When 12.04.1 is released in July it will prompt you to upgrade.

    Besides it not being possible to go directly to 11.10 from 10.04, it would be no safer to do so for your data than going directly to 12.04.
