May be it is a stupid question but are there any reasons to upgrade to 
2.0 from 1.6.2 on qube?
I looked at list of changes and improvements for 2.0 and in my case I 
did not see any compelling reason to upgrade. There is only one security 
fix that i am interested in and that would be rolled in to 1.6.3. Oh yes 
and the lcd panel driver is a part of 2.0. No need to apply the patch.

Does anyone have any performance impressions about 2.0 vs 1.6.2? I 
believe 2.0 comes with gcc 3.0.x. As far as I know later gcc is slower.

How is everything else feels on 2.0?

I am hesitant because last time I upgraded it took me some time to get 
everything back in shape.

Any opinions on this issue ?
