And for that ML this is huge; I don't recall so many screams on a commercial vendor upgrade since Red Hat went from HJ Liu libc to glibc 2.
I've had problems with Kubuntu's graphical updater crashing, but never anything a "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" didn't fix.
Although I'm still on Kubuntu 8.04 - KDE 4 isn't far enough along for me to consider switching to 8.10, so I probably won't be upgrading again until the next LTS release.
(Also, if the infrastructure committee *do* consider using Ubuntu for any of the python.org servers, then the LTS releases are the ones that should probably be considered, rather than the 6-monthly ones).
