that sounded good, but in reality it scrued my boot process what MBR did never.
that was the first time that I did not lost data, no damaged disk, but I did not get grub to boot with rescue disk routine. just by upgrading to the next ubuntu version. So after that you get more conservative for a while after you install again the most bleeding edge stuff

good it was not that bad because I could backup my home but because I was not shure if the new ubuntu screewed my boot process or what I did reinstall my ubuntu, and because it seemed I did save the packagelist in a wrong format, I had to install all packet after packet when I needed it. Yes not that big loss but it sucked at least a bit

yes it had something good like I said on ext4 linux now is really fast like it should be on a ssd ^^ so it was worth the pain maybe
