Well, , the upgrade takes about 48 hours on a slow ARM box and
(worse!) involves you having to poke the console every now and then
for a good number of those hours, responding to configuration
questions and "should I really restart these daemons" boxes.
If you choose to do a fresh installation anyway you may as well go
straight for squeeze.
