I have worked with Ubuntu on the past, but for some work related reasons I had to switch to Windows some months ago. I'm ready to go back to Ubuntu now. It seems a weird time to change, so close to the next release. On one hand I'd rather not wait until 19.10 is released, as Windows is giving me some headaches. On the other hand it doesn't seem the best thing to install Ubuntu 19.04 just to upgrade the distro just two weeks from now. This situation arises some questions to me.
- What are the handicaps of upgrading a release compared to a clean installation? i.e. regarding performance, compatibility issues, driver issues, bloat files, possible lost of space...
- What are the handicaps of installing a beta release and upgrading to stable release when ready compared to a clean stable installation? How easy is it to jump from beta to stable release?
Thanks in advance!
