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.
