Not necessarily, I plan to nuke one perfectly good install, all fully
configured and up2date. Curiosity and all that. A fresh install is best in
this case as its another distro. I only have to keep /home, and even that

I have done upgrades in the past, but they take too long and I have no
patience for slow computers.
