I've followed many Ubuntu releases during their development periods, and the
Lucid LTS is shaping up very nicely. Especially considering the syncing to
Debian-testing and changes to the development process.

Be aware of the switch to grub2, some of the commands have shuffled about in
their usage, as has the configuration file format, it shouldn't be any
problem if you have a stock configuration of the old grub.

A number of packages are dropped from the standard install, and the
arrangement of the nVidia drivers has changed.

There's also a significant change to the usual theming, and the addition of
the Shuttleworth-driven indicators.

I'm sure there's more but i usually bomb everything but /home every six
