Hi Dave,

In theory no. That said there will always be small things that might
break but certainly most things will "just work" with a polished
distro such as Ubuntu.  What specifically in terms of settings do you
want to keep? or are afraid to loose?

> What exactly is an installfest and a hackfest?

InstallFest: A bunch of happy helpful linux geeks/nerds/users in a
room. You bring your computer, they help you install it.  Expect
pony-tails, pizza and other things stereotypically associated with
linux. Although not the smelling bad part.

HackFest: Either the same bunch of geeks from above or/and their
cousins in a room or connected via the internet working together
(hacking) to solve problems (bugs) in code or writing new code to make
your favourite linux/bsd/other distro do new things. Expect even more
pony-tails, black t-shirts, pizza and various gurana enhanced fizzy
