Default Pros and cons of upgrading to ISPconfig 3?

Hi everyone
I am considering upgrading to ISPconfig 3, but I'm not sure. My setup is in my signature (the ISPconfig 2 server).

I have 8 websites running on my server, but I take it they should survive the upgrade (although of course backups will be made first).
Also the server is running Debien Etch. So the second question is, should I upgrade to Debian Lenny before I upgrade to ISPconfig 3? Or after? Or not at all?

I'm a Windows kid so I have this stupid tendency to want to upgrade to new versions of everything *lol* - so I don't want to make that mistake here.
At the moment ISPconfig is working, but ISPconfig 3 looks enticing with the new features and the interface.

So yeah, I would really like some suggestions, pros, cons, opinions. Sorry if this is the wrong forum.

Upgrade to lenny is a good idea.
But there is no way to upgrade ISPconfig v2 to version 3.

I prefer version 3 because of virtual accounts for mail and ftp which isn't available in v2.

There is a misunderstanding from your side. ispconfig 3 is a completely different
software then ispconfig 2. ispconfig 3 is not an update for ispconfig 3 and was never ment to be an update for it. ispconfig 2 is a single server control panel for system users while ispconfig 3 is multi server control panel for virtual users.

ispconfig 2 and 3 will be developed independantly in future. So an update for ispconfig 2 will be always a 2.x version and nevre be an 3.x version.

Ah that sure clears things up. Thanks for the explanation. So I'm gonna just stick with 2.x
I've already found the tutorial here on how to upgrade to Debian lenny, so I'll do that later today.
