It depends on how customized one's system has become. I know from your posts,
Carlos, that you have a *lot* more time and work invested in configuring
services on your system that I don't use. I mostly add software and that's
not too difficult to keep track of.

This is an excellent idea that I plan to postpone for as long as possible. :-)
I'm so busy using the system now I don't have time to "tinker."

Definitely worth the time in your case. I get by with backing up my data,
since I can bring that into any fresh install regardless of version. So, this
is another area where differences are rational.

Thanks for your input, Carlos!
