In pretty much every upgrade cycle, we see a number of corrupted upgrades due to Ubuntu's servers being overrun with early adopters. We would advise you to wait a week or so before doing the online upgrade. There are two advantages to waiting: First, you are less likely to experience a corrupted upgrade; and second, any bugs that were missed in initial testing most likely will be squashed in a week or two.
Yes. I upgraded a machine I don't use much, anymore, with the beta and it went fine. Still fine.
My "production" machine still refuses to upgrade and gets hung up on "Calculating changes" in the do-release-upgrade script. I suppose it's the traffic thing, though the machine next to it is getting the daily updates fine.
