Be  sure to check each of the applications you depend on. In past upgrades
of  mine (different in nature nonetheless), I came to find some quirks and
oddities,  if  not complete disability to launch old programs which I  had
used  for years. Some crashed the device whereas others exited gracefully.
Better find out sooner than later.

Best wishes and good luck,
