Goodbye Karmic, Welcome Lucid
Last night I upgraded my laptop from Ubuntu 9.10 to 10.04 by daily alternate disc. It is scheduled to release final version official on April 29, 2010. This update should be very close to the official one. There were no issues during upgrade. It ran so smooth. The real story began after reboot.
sreadaheadhas been replaced by
/etc/init/sreadahead.confwas still there so init failed. I had to remove it manually and generated initrd again.
upstartwas waiting for
mountallto mount all devices in
/etc/fstab. Unfortunately, I had 2 lines which should not be used on boot.
/dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0 none /proc/bus/usb usbfs devgid=123,devmode=664 0 0
I had to add
nobootwaitas follows to fix.
/dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8,nobootwait 0 0 none /proc/bus/usb usbfs devgid=123,devmode=664,nobootwait 0 0

After 6 hours with
mountall, Lucid is running fast and smooth. In case you want to debug
upstart, you may try to add these options to kernel parameter.
Alt+SysRq+i is your best friend.
