Do not use the option to upgrade to Ubuntu 7.10

If you use the option to upgrade to Ubuntu 7.10 it will hose your system - all Mint is gone and perhaps the system won't work
To be clear - this applies to upgrading Mint to Gutsy - a disaster - not between different versions of Mint

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

Upgrade instructions will be published when Daryna becomes stable. It is already possible to upgrade to Gutsy and Daryna but it's quite tricky and you're likely to encounter problems you would have avoided by following the upgrade instructions.

If your Cassandra/Celena system is stable, keep it that way and wait for Daryna to be stable as well before upgrading to it.

PS: Whether you perform a fresh-install or not, it's also a good idea to test the new release on your hardware with the liveCD in case some of your hardware is not as well supported as before or in case of other noticeable regressions.

I hope I didn't scare people too much here :)

Have fun :)
