    poll : Did you upgrade to Dapper or reinstall ? Did you encounter problems?

    Did you upgrade to Dapper or reinstall ?

    IMHO in most of the cases update-manager (or another graphical tool) works easy and fine to dist-upgrade.
    IMHO in most of the cases in which update-manager (or another graphical tool) doesn't work upgrading by hand is not very hard. Especially if you read these before upgrading :

    IMHO the amount of people who have big problems is not very high. But it seems high because :
    -(let's say) 5% of our users is still more than 1000 people.
    -people with problems are naturally more vocale here than people without problems. Because if you don't have problems there isn't much to talk about. So those 5% of users may seem to be 10% of our users if you look at the amount of threads about people with problems.

    But I could be completely wrong. That's why I started this poll. To get an idea about real percentages.

    The choices :

    *I installed Dapper from cd and I have encountered big problems.
    *I installed Dapper from cd and I have encountered some small problems.
    *I installed Dapper from cd and I haven't encountered any problems at all.
    *I dist-upgraded Breezy to Dapper using a graphical tool and I have encountered big problems.
    *I dist-upgraded Breezy to Dapper using a graphical tool and I have encountered some small problems.
    *I dist-upgraded Breezy to Dapper using a graphical tool and I haven't encountered any problems at all.
    *I dist-upgraded Breezy to Dapper from the terminal and I have encountered big problems.
    *I dist-upgraded Breezy to Dapper from the terminal and I have encountered some small problems.
    *I dist-upgraded Breezy to Dapper from the terminal and I haven't encountered any problems at all.
    *Other
