Upgrading to Ubuntu Edgy Eft a "Nightmare" ?

There's an article on Slashdot saying that several people are having trouble upgrading to Edgy (the latest Ubuntu release). I'm currently in the process of upgrading. Lets hope everything works out well...

I have followed this guide to do the upgrade. (The wiki keeps updating) Only difference is that I'm using the command: sudo apt-get --download-only dist-upgrade . Since I have a slow internet connection, I figured it would be better to download all the packages at night, little by little, and then run the upgrade process.

I don't have important data on my root partition, and my /home partition is separate.

Just to be on the safer side, I'll backup all important data before doing the upgrade.
