Ubuntu Lucid Lynx: Will You Upgrade?

Its no secret that when Canonical released the latest version (version 9.10 Karmic Koala) of their popular open-source Operating System (Ubuntu) it received a mixed reception, many users reported a variation of difficulties, problems ranged from a blank screen upon boot, to various driver issues.

At the moment Canonical seem set to release the next version of their OS in late April 2010, this latest version will be version 10.04 and is named Lucid Lynx, this is their first major release since Karmic Koala which was released in late October 2009.

Most of the problems users experienced with Karmic Koala occurred after an OS upgrade, fresh installs seemed a lot more stable, however this may have had an affect on Ubuntu users choices in the future.

Therefore we thought we would ask our readers some questions. Will you upgrade to Lucid Lynx when it is released? If not which Ubuntu version will you stick with? Did the problems with Karmic Koala force you to migrate to a different Linux distro? If so, what did you choose?
