I did this during 6.x time but got stuck then with 6.x and never went
back until last May/June.

Trippled? Are you sure? I have the feeling it is much worse than this.
Was it in 2009 when I could compile world in a few minutes on my quad
core. The same machine takes now hours despite having more memory.

I run currently my desktop and my notebook on 10. If I stick with my
policy, I would stay with 10 until 12 would be available.

On the other side, it feels so outdated not to have something like
the most current version.
