    Hardy Heron is the newest version of Ubuntu and will do everything Gutsy did, but more..so I'd wait for the official release tomorrow and then start off using Hardy instead of installing Gutsy today and upgrading tomorrow..

    Fresh install is always the best..

    In general, the newer versions of any distro come with a newer kernel, xorg, desktop enviornments (gnome, kde, or xfce), and programs. Newer kernels have support for newer hardware. Newer versions of xorg, gnome, kde, xfce and programs come with newer (and possibly ever better) features, etc.
    Ubuntu 8.04 will be a LTS (long term support) version, which means it will be supported for at least 3 years, instead of the normal 18 months.

    A new hardware might possibly contain items which are not yet included in gutsy or hardy, however, updates in future should put such things right.

    An easy way to check is to use the Live CD first,you can see that everything works. I use a live CD in the shop to check things will work ok, if I can, and buy things if they work. I did this with a camera.
