I'm usually on Testing but wait a few weeks after launch before I upgrade, hoping for the worst bugs to be identified until then. Same thing if I was running stable. I mean, there will always be a couple of new bugs after release so one can as well wait a bit.

Two of my three systems are still running Debian Wheezy and my laptop is loving Debian Buster.

Put me in the already upgraded camp. I try to wait, but I always get impatient and upgrade some time between the hard freeze and release day.

It will. There are a lot of changes in the file hierarchy. For example, Buster could not find my Brother scanner until I copied the Brother libraries to a different directory. And all of the packages that depend on Qt4 and libmariadbd18 have to be rebuilt, so Amarok will not be in Buster, nor will kodi-pvr-hts.

I still have two systems running Wheezy. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

There are no security upgrades for Wheezy. But that's not much of an issue for my two Wheezy machines. One is a television server (for over-the-air broadcast TV). The other is my phonetop, which I use as an alternative desktop, but rarely use to browse the internet.

For everything else, I have a laptop running Debian Buster.

Backup the system before upgrading then. But you already have a full backup, right?

If you're using btrfs then take a snaphot, boot into the snapshot and upgrade that to test.

I'll wait a couple of months before upgrading to Buster just in case!
