2007 upgrades wiped the lot, and you had to restore your user data
from backup and reinstall the latest versions of your apps.

I believe 2008 works the same way, though I have not tried it.

I seem to remember that upgrading from Linux gives more control and
allows, for instance, kernel upgrades without fragging user space.
But don't ask me where I read that.
