Why be in such a hurry to upgrade?  Is being an early adopter that 
important to you?  On the first day or so of a new release, the repos 
are going to be slammed, just as the MS servers are on Patch Tuesday. 
And, of course, there's always the few (we hope) bugs and glitches that 
didn't get caught in beta-testing.  I always wait at least a week, to 
see how things are going, and then I only upgrade my laptop.  My 
desktop, and main work machine, can wait until I'm sure that the 
laptop's OK.  And, if I see large numbers of threads here and on the 
various web fora about upgrade issues, I'll wait even longer, sometimes 
skipping a version if it seems buggier than normal.  Of course, I'm only 
responsible for my own boxes at home, and being retired have no work 
boxes to consider, but I'd think that a little bit of patience might be 
a good thing here.  YMMV, and clearly does, but I do wonder a tad about 
what's the big rush.  (If you have a good reason, such as a need for the 
newest version of something, of course, that's different.  It's just the 
"change for the sake of change" attitude that I don't quite understand.)
